SLAVICA / LJUBLJANA IMPRINT: Pot Şvetiga Krisha pervizh v’ Lashkim jesiku [The Path of the Holy Cross, First Time in Slovenian language… ]



12 °. Engraved frontispiece, 104 pp., 14 interleaved aquatint illustrations, contemporary dark brown goat with linear blind tooling in margins, small old round paper stamp in the upper corner of the front board, patterned endpapers, red edges (binding slightly worn on the edges, tiny cracks in hinges of endpapers, deaccessioned small library stamps, light water-staining in the first part of the book).



A religious work in Slovenian language, printed in Ljubljana.

The text is written in the Bohorič alphabet, an orthography used in Slovenian printing until the early 19th century. The alphabet was first used by the pioneer of Slovenian book printing Primož Trubar in the 16th century and was named after Adam Bohorič, who used the symbols in his work Articae Horulae Succisivae, printed in 1583 and published in 1584.

This is a handsome example with a contemporary binding and decorative endpapers.

The book was published in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and was based on the first translation, issued in 1843 in Graz, Austria (please see this link for the details: https://pahor.de/product/pot-svetiga-krisha-pervizh-v-lashkim-jesiku-the-path-of-the-holy-cross-first-time-in-slovenian-language/)
