Modus orandi Deum
Nuremberg: Johann Petreius, 1525. An early edition of Erasmus' treatise on prayer, first published in 1524 by Froben in Basel. Over the next couple years editions appeared in Cologne, Strasbourg, Mainz, and Nuremberg. The work is important in terms of Erasmus' reforming efforts - he tries to emphasize prayer free from a mechanistic or superstitious attitudes and done in a language that the faithful can understand. 8vo (16 x 10cm), 43 leaves. Lacking last blank. Rebound in 19th century calf with spine rebacked; a bit too tight on the inner margin, but full text can be read. Book-plates to front endpapers. Pencil notation that states this is book is from the library of the great French philosopher Auguste Comte, but there are no other indications to substantiate this notation. Quite a rare edition of Erasmus. [Vander Haeghen I, 121; Bezzel, 1289]
Bookseller: Zinos Books [United States]
