Lviv: ed. et typ. I. Fyodorov, 1574, [13], [263] ff.,

The Apostle was printed in Lviv by Ivan Fyodorov (1520–1583): he is considered to be one of the founding fathers of Ukrainian book printing. Initially, Fyodorov worked in Moscow until he was expelled. He found refuge in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth where he printed books in Lviv and Ostrog. Fyodorov’s Apostle (1574) is one of the most important books in the Slavonic Library.
