The first Sacon Latin bible. Sacon was active from 1503-1522, printing for himself as well as Koberger, Petit and others - he reproduced the best editions of the day for the Lyonnaise market.
Darlow & Moule 6091, Bibliographie Lyonnaise XII 318. Baudrier suggests Sacon printed it for Luc-Antione Giunta which appears more likely than Masch's suggestion (from Darlow & Moule) that it was an attempted forgery, given Sacon's printing of other works for Koberger, Petit and others.
