And finally one of our incunabula. This is one of the earliest printed books (1472) but it's so sharp and pristine it could have been printed yesterday. Just look at that illumination! #coololdbooks

MAY 5 PROMPT: INCUNABULUM

Here‘s my offering of #incunabulum for today‘s prompt in the #OldCoolBooks photo #challenge. These are photos I purloined (Shhhhh!!) 😬 from the Web of the newly-discovered Dead Sea Scrolls that are currently on exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science #dmns. Oh HOW I wish I were up to going in person; the museum is just over an hour from my home! Alas, we can obsess over the pics together.

Linsy I missed it when it came here, but I so wanted to go as well!! 😍 2y

An #incunabulum is a book published before 1501 and since I unfortunately do not own anything so old, here is a picture of page from one with a lovely double tailed mermaid.

Proof that cats will be cats, even on #incunabulum. 😹 A researcher found these inky paw prints on a Croatian manuscript from 1445. #oldcoolbooks #KAL

Cathythoughts That‘s amazing 😻 2y
LiteraryinLititz That‘s adorable! 2y
tournevis There are similar prints on many Irish and French manuscripts, as well as on Roman era roof tiles! 2y

I don‘t have any #OldCoolBooks that pre-date 1501 but I ohhh sooo wish I did @Linsy ..😔 This is my first time seeing this word, #Incunabulum, so thank you for growing both my vocabulary and knowledge! As Dr Seuss says, “ The more you read, the more you‘ll know!” ❤️📚❤️

Linsy I love this! I didn‘t know the Latin particulars. I love how we as a species have decided that words to describe specific things are important. 2y
CoverToCoverGirl Oops! Just realized I‘m a bit early with this one @Linsy 😳🤷‍♀️ (edited) 2y
