(Mainz, Johann Sch�ffer), 1521. (Mainz, Johann Schöffer), 1521. Full woodcut historiated title-border and typographic title. 3 ff. Sm.-4to. 19th century morocco (Hans Asper, Geneva). From the library of Gaspard Ernest Stroehlin (1844-1907) with his exlibris "Mente Libera". (Mainz, Johann Schöffer), 1521. First edition. In addition to the Greek and Latin writings of Erasmus' (1467-1536) we know a small number in German language. The humanist's paraphrases of the Evangelists were greeted with immediate popularity, and received numerous reprintings. The seven woes to the Scribes and Pharisees in Matthew 23 are a list of critical words by Jesus against the religious leaders as hypocrisy and perjury. Because of Erasmus' critique of the Roman Catholic Church in the first edition of the Index Librorum Prohibitorum (1564) his writings were more severely condemned than the works of Luther or Calvin. - A nice copy of a rare booklet, seldom found in a library outside Germany. - VD 16 E 3123; Vander Haegen I, 149 (assigns this edition as the first one and printed by Johann Schöffer in Mainz); Bezzel 1239; not in Pegg (Swiss). REFORMATION ; HUMANISM ; BINDINGS ;
Bookseller: Hellmut Schumann Antiquariat [Switzerland]
