        METAMORPHOSEON

      Lugduni: Sebastianius Gryphius, 1553. n. Hardcover. 178 x 108 mm (7 x 4 1/4"). 411 pp., [1] blank leaf (but without the final blank). A CONTEMPORARY CALF BINDING BY JACOB BATHEN OF LOUVAIN, WITH BATHEN'S ELABORATELY BLINDSTAMPED "SPES" PANEL ON BOTH COVERS featuring a full-length figure of a walking woman, her arms folded, her face looking up at a cross above the clouds, near which are the words "Meritum Christi," with the word "Spes" behind her head, "Charitas" below her to the right, and "Fides" on the pedestal beneath her feet, the binder's device and initials "I. B." in the lower left, the opening verses in Latin of Psalm 70 in front of the woman, and a Latin legend taken from Psalm 90 around the perimeter of the panel; raised bands, spine with simple blind ruling, pastedowns removed exposing the construction of the binding, first and last gatherings protected by strips from a 13th(?) century vellum manuscript (very expertly rebacked to style and with restoration at corners). With the publisher's woodcut griffin device on title page. Later (18th century?) ownership inscription of C. N. Cuvier on title page; rear flyleaf with early note in Latin; remnants of rear pastedown with signature of "[Ro]bertus Camholt." Baudrier VIII, 266; not in Adams or Schweiger. For the binding: Fogelmark "Flemish and Related Panel-Stamped Bindings," pp. 157-59; Goldschmidt 179-81; Fairfax-Murray French 159; Schmidt "Bucheinbaende in Darmstadt," plate XXVII, fig. 35. A little splaying to upper board, covers with slight crackling, but the expertly restored binding entirely solid, and the details of the panel stamps very sharp. Faint dampstain covering a small portion of many leaves at bottom (another dampstain sometimes at top, and with about half the page affected in four quires near the end), minor soiling here and there (two leaves with darker, though smaller, areas of soiling); not without condition issues internally, but nothing fatal, and the text both fresh and with ample margins. This is one of the famous so-called "Spes" bindings, which feature a charming full-figured Renaissance image of Hope, our binding confidently attributable to publisher and bookseller Jacob Bathen (ca. 1516-58), whose initials and cipher appear on both covers. The "Spes" panel stamp was introduced in the 1520s by a binder with the initials "I. P.," tentatively identified as Jacob Pandelaer, and was especially popular during the three decades beginning with the 1530s. There were two variants, one with the word "Charitas" and one without, available as a response to customer demand. Fogelmark and Verheyden attribute this variant to the religious dissension of the time. The allegorical design celebrates the miracle of man's salvation, through the "Meritum Christi" (Merit of Christ), with Spes, Fides, and Charitas (Hope, Faith, and Charity) being the three theological virtues associated with salvation. Because Lutherans believed man was saved by faith alone, without the Catholic requirement for charity or good works, Fogelmark logically asserts that the "Charitas" design was favored by Catholics, while the version without it was embraced by Lutherans. When the young Marcus Fugger visited Louvain (the place of publication of our Ovid) in 1546, he ordered a binding featuring a "Spes" panel with "Charitas," though it is not clear whether he actually had a choice at that moment, because at some time during the Counter-Reformation and the persecution of Protestants by Charles V, the panel without "Charitas" ceased to be used. Our edition of Ovid's "Metamorphoses" was issued by the man Febvre and Martin describe as the "'Prince of the Lyon book trade," Sebastian Gryphius, or Gryphe (1492-1556), a German humanist printer who had trained in Venice. From 1525 until his death, Gryphius produced a long series of editions of classical authors in Lyon, mostly in small formats designed for use by university students. The present very rare octavo edition was not meant to be anything but a modest production, but it is attractively printed in a pleasing Aldine italic typeface.

        Tre Discorsi Di Girolamo Ruscelli, A M. Lodovico Dolce

      Venice: [Plinio Pietrasanta], 1553., 1553. small 4to. pp. 1 p.l., 287. woodcut printer's device on title. woodcut initials. A wide-margined copy in contemporary limp vellum (some marginal dampstaining). some old marginal ms. notes. signature on title of Scottish patriot & bibliophile Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun [1655-1716]. First Edition of Ruscelli's scathing attacks and counter-attacks on three works by Lodovico Dolce. The first and most important contains Ruscelli's critique of Dolce's edition of Boccaccio's Decamerone, of which Ruscelli himself had published a rival edition at about the same time (1552). The second discorso consists of an attack on Dolce's treatise on the vernacular, Osservationi della lingua volgare, while the third is an attack on Dolce's translation of Ovid's Metamorphoses, which was still in the press. Among other things, Ruscelli criticizes the use in Dolce's Decamerone of woodcut illustrations which were clearly designed for his translation of Ovid. Adams R959. BM STC Italian p. 593. See Mortimer, Harvard Italian 16th Century Books, 72n & 342n.. 1st Edition.

        Clarissimi iurisconsulti Benuenuti Stracchae patritii Anconitani, De mercatura, seu Mercatore tractatus.

      Venetiis [Venice], Cum Preivilegio [Paolo Manuzio], 1553. 8vo. In a contemporary unrestored vellum binding with three raised bands. Later paper labels pasted on to upper and lower part of spine. "Stracc. / de /Mercat." written in contemporary hand to spine. Upper and lower part of front hinge slightly cracked. "sum Marii D'Abbatis" written in contemporary hand to pasted down front free end-paper. Early oval stamp on verso of title-page with monogram. Aldine woodcut device to title page (Ahmanson-Murphy device no: B2). Occasional marginal annotations and very light occasional marginal water-staining. Tiny wormhole in blank outer margin not affecting text. A very nice, clean, and completely unrestored copy. (40), 287, (1) ff. (with the four blanks 5+6-8 and 2N8). As usual with the typopgraphical errors: "63 '64', 85 '87', 87 '85', 102 '106', 165 '167', 174 '176', 176 '178'". These errors are to be found in all published copies.. Exceedingly rare first edition of Stracca's highly important work on merchant- and economic insurance- and insurance law. With the present work, Stracca provided the first systematic exposition of commercial law, in particular maritime law, which he was the first to view as distinct from civil law. He was furthermore the first to consider these aspects of the law from a practical point of view, thereby breaking with the late Medieval scholastic law-tradition. Maritime law, often referred to as admiralty law, was developed in Venice in the middle of the 13th century, prompted by the extensive Mediterranean sea trade in which the republic engaged. Legal agreements concluded between consortiums were ad hoc and even though the practice was, by the time of Straccha, both well-established and quite refined, when one compares to the rest of Europe, no full and systematic exposition of the subject had been published before Straccha wrote his influential treatise. The work was extremely influential and extremely popular with eight reprints in the 17th century (after the present first edition from 1553): 1555, 1556, 1558, 1575, 1576, 1595, 1599). Numerous reprints in the course of the 17th century bear witness to its longstanding influence. "In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, continental jurists began to regard the affairs of merchants as matter of sufficient interest to warrant special attention and separate treatment in legal writing. Beginning with Benvenuto Straccha's De Mercatura, seu Mercatore Tractatus published in Venice in 1553, a substantial literature on commercial law developed." (Rogers, The Early History of the Law of Bills and Notes, p. 151)Stracca's work deals with the merchant class and commerce in general; mercantile contracts, maritime law, and how to deal with bankruptcy. "His work contains information of interest to economists. He shows the usefulness of trade and navigation; discusses the restrictions on certain branches of trade, and expresses comparatively moderate opinions on the theory of usury." (Palgrave).The aspect of insurance was particularly important to Venetian traders, for whom the loss of a single ship could mean bankruptcy. Initially, smaller companies went into coorporation with other smaller companies and created consortiums in order to spread out the risk. Eventually, the practice of insuring oneself through such consortiums became commercialized which lead to the emergence of companies that profited from this line of business: "A separate sector in which there were many opportunities for making profit from money was insurance. In this sector the damnum emergens [ensuing expense] had a purely hypothetical basis, not a real one. Certainly the element of risk played a plausible role in the case of transport by sea: a subject that was particularly dear to the Ancona jurist Benvenuto Stracca, author of one of the first treatises on trade law and editor of a large collection of writings on mercantile doctrine and jurisprudence." (Palgrave).Renouard 156:6. "Ce volume imprimé en petites lettres rondes est rare." Einaudi 5491. Kress 69. Goldsmiths 52. Adams S.1911.Ahmanson-Murphy 444Houkes p. 237

Johannes der Täufer ein Lamm in Armen haltend, vor einer Kirche stehend. 5,7:4,6 cm. - Hl. Hieronymus vor einem Kreuz kniend. 5,9:4,6 cm. 4 Blatt Federzeichnungen in Braun, braun laviert, auf Bütten. Auf Karton montiert, die Zeichnung mit der Darstellung des Johannes hat am linken Rand eine kleine Fehlstelle sowie eine rote Farbspur. Vorzeichnungen für Kupferstiche von Hieronymus Wierix (1553 ?-1619). Maerten de Vos schuf zahlreiche kleinformatige Zeichnungen dieser Art, die außer von verschiedenen Künstlern der Kupferstecherfamilien Wierix und Sadeler auch von A. Collaert (um 1560-1618) und Ph. Galle (1537-1612) gestochen wurden. Zwei vergleichbare Zeichnungen "Christus im Garten von Gethsemane" sowie "Die Gefangennahme Christi" (beide 5,9:4,6 cm) befinden sich in den graphischen Sammlungen des Rijksmuseum Amsterdam und des Fogg Art Museum, Cambridge/Mass.

Maerten de Vos war wahrscheinlich der Schüler von Frans Floris (1519/20-1570). 1552 unternahm er eine Reise nach Italien, vielleicht in Begleitung von Pieter Bruegel d. Ä. (1525/30-1569) und besuchte Rom, Florenz und Venedig. Es ist umstritten, ob er im Atelier Tintorettos ( gearbeitet hat. 1556 ist er in Antwerpen wieder nachweisbar,1558 wird er als Meister in die St. Lukas-Gilde aufgenommen. Nach dem Tode von Floris 1570 wird er der beherrschende Künstler der Stadt mit einer großen Werkstatt. Durch die Rekatholisierung von 1585 an erhielt er zahlreiche Aufträge für Altarwerke. Parallel dazu war er vor allem als Zeichner für den Kupferstich tätig.

        NOVUM TESTAMENTUM. Interprete Sebastiano Castalione.

      Basel, Ioannes Oporinus, 1553.NEW TESTAMENT 1553, Latin text. Second edition of Castalione translation, 8vo, approximately 170 x 95 mm, 6¾ x 3¾ inches, 501 pages with side notes, ruled throughout in reddish brown, title lined in yellow on title page, decorated initials to each book with same early pale yellow hand colouring, some capital letters lined in yellow throughout, bound in full antique calf, rebacked to style with gilt motif and title between raised bands, covers panelled in blind with gilt ornament at corners and in centre, all edges gilt, original red ruled endpapers. Corners worn with slight loss of leather to tips, lower cover worn with some loss of surface and loss of leather on fore - edge, small scrape to upper cover also, inner paper hinges repaired expertly, small armorial bookplate on first pastedown, closed tear to 2 margins, 1 just affecting text, neatly repaired, all still legible, tip missing from 2 corners, a few marginal notes and a few underlinings, both in very pale ink, contents otherwise clean, binding tight and firm. A very good copy of a Latin New Testament. The translator Sebastien Chatillon (1515 - 1563) was a French Protestant theologian and humanist. He was an associate of Calvin and an important figure in the early years of the Reformation. Through the influence of Calvin he was appointed rector of a school in Geneva, from which he was expelled on theological grounds in 1544. He subsequently became a professor of Greek in Basel and there published his famous Latin version of the Bible (1551). Calvin had refused permission for this in Geneva when he realised that Chatillon's translation threatened his authority on a number of points of theological interpretation. A separate edition of Chatillon's New Testament was issued also in 1551. A striking characteristic of Chatillon's Latin version is his use of classical substitutes for recognised ecclesiastical terms such as fanum for templum, respublica for ecclesia, collegium for synagoga. Chatillon also made a French version of the Bible from the Hebrew and Greek published in 1555 also in Basel. See Darlow and Moule, II,1 3720 and II, 2 6131.

Le traité de Prodigiis, composé par le théologien et érudit italien Polydore Vergilius (1470-1555), est une réfutation de la prétendue science divinatoire.

Wiederholte Holzschnitt-Druckermarken auf Titel recto und letztes Bl. verso (s. Heitz/B. Nr. 79). Blindgepr. Schweinsleder d. Zt. über Holzdeckeln (gebräunt, berieben und bestoßen, Rücken mit Läsuren und Bezugsfehlstellen, Gelenke angerissen); Schließenreste. Im zweiten Teil die Annotationen des H. Glareanus mit eigenem Titel in Erstausgabe. Genauere Lebensdaten von Valerius Maximus gibt es nicht; dass er sein Werk Kaiser Tiberius widmet, ist der wichtigste zeitliche Anhaltspunkt. Seine hoch literarisierte Beispielsammlung stellt das Moralische in den Vordergrund (Pflichten gegenüber den Göttern, den Mitmenschen; die Kunst der Selbstbehauptung und die der Selbstbeschränkung etc.). Jedes Exempel besteht aus einem einführenden erzählenden Text und der sich anschließenden Reflexion. - In Mittelalter und Renaissance gehörte er zu den meistgelesenen Autoren. Titel recto mit zwei Besitzereinträgen von Salem. Der erste Teil des Bandes ist auf besserem Papier gedruckt, und entsprechend ist dieser Teil weniger gebräunt als der andere. Unabhängig davon sind einige Lagen leicht wasserrandig, hin und wieder finden sich Farbstiftanstreichungen.

        La première [et seconde] partie du promptuaire des médailles des plus renommées personnes qui ont été depuis le commencement du monde: avec brieve description de leurs vies et faicts, recueillie des bons auteurs.

      Lyon, Rouillé 1553 - 2 parties en un volumes in-4 [227 x 157 mm]. Collation : (8), 172, (4) / 247, (7) pp. pp. Veau marbré, dos à nerfs, tranches rouges. (Reliure du XVIIIe.) Première édition française. C'est une sorte de biographie universelle des hommes illustres depuis Adam jusqu'à Jeanne d'Albret et Henri II. Elle est illustrée de la marque de Rouillé sur le premier titre, d'une figure emblématique sur le second, d'un bois gravé de l'Annonciation en tête de la seconde partie et de 824 portraits en médaillon dessinés par George Reverdy, Corneille de la Haye et autres maîtres graveurs. Les figures des femmes sont souvent les plus réussies. Didot dans son Essai (p. 245) vante le caractère artistique de cette illustration et dit qu'on y voit "la gravure sur bois s'efforcer de lutter avec la taille-douce pour rendre le modèle des figures au moyen d'un travail de taille souvent croisées." Les trois éditions originales (latine, française, italienne) "admirablement imprimées et tirées sur excellent papier, sont plus recherchées par les amateurs que les éditions de 1577 à 1582 plus complètes mais au tirage défectueux." (Baudrier 9, 50). Les initiales de Guillaume Rouillé sont, dans l'exemplaire de la Harvard library, estampées en tête de sa dédicace à Marguerite de Navarre. Dans cet exemplaire elles ont été tracées à la plume. Ex-libris manuscrit de l'époque sur la page de titre de Jacques Suarez (?) qui a ajouté quelques commentaires dans les marges. Bon exemplaire.

        L'arte della navigatione con il regimento della Tramontana, e del sole, e la regola del flusso, e reflusso delle acque.

      [Italy, final third of the 16th century].. 4to. 52 ff., with a final blank f. foliated "53". Manuscript on paper, written by one scribe in a careful humanistic script, with penwork grottesche on f1r, 4 working volvelles, 6 text illustrations and other tables. Watermark resembling the type Briquet 633: a northern Italian Angel design attested at Padova (1553), Salo (1572-76), and Udine (1579). Later period-style vellum.. Unpublished, charmingly illustrated handwritten manual of navigation in the Levante as well as in the south seas, representing the state of Italian navigational art in the second half of the 16th century. The text is divided into six parts, the first of which deals with cosmography and navigation in general. The second treats the subject of navigation by the North Star (with a particularly evocative volvelle including a tiny ocean-going ship that circles the globe from pole to pole); part three discusses navigation in the southern hemisphere, by the Southern Cross and the south celestial pole. Part four describes navigation by the altitude of the sun (with extensive examples and tables, including the meridians throughout the Mediterranean), followed by "la regola della navigatione di Levante in ponente per longitudine". Part five is occupied with the action of the tides, including details on the various hazards of the English channel and the Strait of Messina, and contains a striking sketch of the man in the moon, controller of tides. Part six, finally, contains latitudinal readings "di tutto il Levante", and further astronomical references. Remarkably, the latitude for Constantinople (43 degrees and no minutes) describes the capital of the Ottoman Empire as "la famosa citta di Constantinopoli hoggi possessa da Soltan Soliman Imperator de' Turchi", which would date the ms. at 1566 at the latest. However, a few other copies of the text are known, all of which would appear to be slightly later than this date: a somewhat smaller copy formerly in the National Maritime Museum and now MS 562 at the Beinecke Library (72 ff.) is dated "1567", while the British Museum holds a copy (74 ff., MS Add. 25882) with a preface (and sonnet) to Paolo Sforza, dated 1570 (possibly a presentation fair copy?). Yet another copy is kept at the Vatican (De Ricci, Census, p. 1899: with the ecclesiastical censors' imprimatur, though no printed edition is known), and an anonymous ms. is in the Library of Congress (Ms. Ac. 4325). It is therefore likely that Cesareo composed his navigational treatise before 1567 and that, on account of its usefulness, within a period of roughly a decade several ms. copies were produced, of which this is one. Clearly drawn up in the later sixteenth century, this is precisely the kind of manual that would have been in the hands of the merchant navigators on whose ships the Venetian jeweller Gasparo Balbi famously travelled to India and Arabia during the years 1579-88, when he made the first European record of Bani Yas, as well as of Abu Dhabi and Dubai by their modern names. - Ownership inscription of Giovanni Krabbe, dated 3 Oct. 1604, on integral blank f. preceding the text. Covers insignificantly warped. A very clean, nearly unbrowned manuscript, with all the volvelles complete and in good condition. From the collection of the eminent Johns Hopkins historian Frederic C(hapin) Lane (1900-84), who specialized in Italian shipbuilding and founded mediaeval Venetian economic history as a discipline: purchased in Venice in 1928 during work on the subject. Includes photocopies of Lane's correspondence with Albert Cohn, Leipzig (1926, regarding the purchase of other mss.), Eva G. R. Taylor (1935-36, regarding Cesareo and his "Arte della navigatione"), and Paul Kristeller (1977, regarding inclusion of the ms. in his "Iter Italicum"). - Kristeller, Iter Italicum V, 422a.

        La Nouvelle Natura Breviu[m] du Iudge Tresreverende Monsieur Anthonie.

      1553. Heavily Annotated Copy of a Work Highly Esteemed by Coke and Blackstone Fitzherbert, Anthony [1470-1538]. Rastell, William [1508?-1565]. La Nouvelle Natura Breviu[m] du Iudge Tresreverende Monsieur Anthonie Fitzherbert, Dernierement Renue & Corrige per Laucteur, Avecques un Table Perfaicte des Choses Notables Contenues en Ycelle, Novelment Co[m]posee per Guilliaumle Rastell, & Iammais per Cydeuaunt Imprimee. London: In Aedibus Richardi Tottelli, 1553 [colophon date: 1560]. [xxxii] of [xxxiii], 271, [1] ff. The missing leaf is a blank. Octavo (6-1/4" x 4-1/4"). Nineteenth-century paneled calf, dentelles to board edges and interior, rebacked retaining earlier spine, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, edges rouged, marbled pastedowns, free endpapers lacking (or never present). Moderate rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends, hinges cracked, armorial bookplate to rear pastedown. Title printed within woodcut architectural border. Some toning to interior, very faint dampstaining to portions of text, dampspotting to a few leaves, light soiling and some edgewear to title page. Annotations in early court hand to endleaves, title page and most of text. An appealing wide-margined copy. * First published in 1534, the Nouvelle Natura Brevium is a manual of procedure written by a Judge of the Common Pleas during the reign of Henry VIII. Winfield notes that "Coke put it among the books which he considered most necessary and of greatest authority and excellency"; Blackstone considered it an authority as well. Compiled from the earlier Natura Brevia and the Registrum Brevium, it includes several original observations on the form and function of writs. Rastell's revisions include the addition of a table. A popular work, it went through numerous editions in Law French and English, the final appearing in 1794. It remains significant to this day for its descriptions of writs that were becoming obsolete in the early sixteenth century. Most of the annotations in our copy are case references. Some offer commentary or cite passages in other treatises, such as Lambard's Eirenarcha. A few combine references to cases, commentary and a treatise citation.

        Xenophontis philosophi et historici clarissimi opera, quae quidem Grece extant, omnia, partim iam olim, partim nuc primum, hominum doctissimorum diligentia, in latinam linguam couersa, at[que] nunc postremu per Seb. Castalionem de integro, magno studiosorum compendio, recognita [...].

      Basel, Michael Isengrin, 1553.. 2 in 1 Band. 8vo. (18 x 13,4 cm). 12 nn Bll., 819 S., 2 (weiße) Bll., 450 S. Mit Holzschnitt-Druckermarke sowie etlichen figürlichen und ornamentalen Initialen. Lederband der Zeit auf 4 erhabenen Bünden über Holzdeckeln, mit Farbschnitt und reicher Blindprägung aus Rollenstempeln und Streicheisenlinien; Schließen fehlen, Kapital mit kleiner Fehlstelle u. kleine Bezugsfehlstelle am unteren Rücken.. Seltene und gesuchte, von Sebastian Castellio (1515-1563) bearbeitete Baseler Ausgabe in schönem Exemplar. - Der humanistische Gelehrte Castellio begab sich 1540 als Mitarbeiter Johannes Calvins nach Strassburg. 1541 wurde er zum Rektor des College de Rive in Genf ernannt. Nach dem Zerwürfnis mit Calvin ließ er sich 1545 in Basel nieder, wo er um 1553 zum Professor für Griechisch an die Universität berufen wurde. Das historische Hauptverdienst des Humanisten ist seine Verteidigung von Toleranz und Religionsfreiheit sowie seine Ablehnung der Tötung von Menschen aus religiösen Gründen. Er gab zwei vollständige Bibelübersetzungen und die Werke mehrerer griechischer Autoren (Xenophon, Herodot, Diodor, Homer, Thukydides) heraus. - "This is the edition which was published by the famous Castalio, when he was Greek professor at Basil, and which [...] is a very correct and excellent one. The editions of Junta, which are corrected by Castilio [...] formed the basis of it. It is emphatically called the Basil edition, and was the first revision of Xenophon's text published in Germany. [...] Copies with the Basil title-page are very rare [...]." (Dibdin II, 566). - Schöner Druck, breitrandig und sauber. - Titel und Bll. a2-4 mit kleinem Wurmloch (mit unbedeutendem Buchstabenverlust in Vorwort und Index), vorderes fliegendes Vorsatzblatt fehlt, vorderer Spiegel mit Einträgen von alter Hand. - VD16 X 14. Vgl. Schweiger, 335 und Graesse VI, 483.

        Operum primus con index tomus (allein!). Band 1 und Index (von 9) in I.

      Basileae / Basel Froben, 1553.. Sondereinband. Stark "zensiertes" Exemplar mit teils entfernten Seiten, teils nur überklebten Seiten, wenn der Zensor wohl die Rückseite für "unbedenklich" hielt. Diese "Überklebungen" wurden aber wohl auch wieder teils von wissbegierigen Lesern entfernt. Einband: Pergament der Zeit, Buchblock vom Einband fast kpl. gelöst Pergament von innen recht geschickt unterlegt, Vorsätze müssten erzgänzt werden. Die Heftung des Buchs perfekt. Handschriftlich Titel auf Vorderdeckel und Rücken, mit stärkeren Gebrauchsspuren, aber alles in Originalzustand! Index ca 200 S. Erste Seiten mit Mäusefraß am Rand ohne Textverlust. Druckermarke am Schluss (ohne Jahreszahl). Prachtvoller Druck auf sehr gutem Papier, nur einige Lagen stärker gebräunt, letzte Lagen mit deutlicheren Gebrauchsspuren, 1 Blatt mit Namenseintrag "del Luogo de Soncino de fratr. Cappucini." Nach Angaben der Vorbestitzer stammt das Werk aus einen aufgelösten Kloster in Latium in Cellino dem "Convento S. Giovanni Battista" das 1980 in ein Hotelzentrum umgewandelt wurde . Es scheint, als ob insbesondere die Briefe an Frauen des Hieronymus keine Gnade vor dem Zensor gefunden haben, aber auch das Kapitel "De virginitate seruanda" ,"de monogamia" und selbst das "de vita clericorum", meinte er "verbessern" zu müssen. In einer Randnotiz gibt er sich als Frater Andreas zu erkennen, erwähnt den Index libr. prohibit. aber wirklich nachvollziehbar wird sein Tun dadurch auch nicht. Interessantes Dokument trotz der sicherlich zu 10 % entfernten Seiten! LA214.6
