ERASMUS [Desiderio Erasmo da Rotterdam]
Colloquia Familiaria ex doctorum virorum emendatione cum notis selectis
Amsterdam: Jac a. Wetstein 1754 - Complete with index, autobiography and epitaph of Erasmus at Basel. Dedication to Frobenius. Recent full mottled leather with gilt date, and title to a burgundy band. The binding is spotless and without flaws. The book itself is clean and tidy throughout, with fractional darkening only. A lovely copy. Engraved frontispiece of Erasmus with three doctors. Erasmus expressed his views indirectly through the Colloquia, which had started as schoolboy dialogues but became a vehicle for commentary. For example, in the colloquy "Inquisitio de fide" (1522) a Catholic finds to his surprise that Lutherans accept all the dogmas of the faith, that is, the articles of the Apostles’ Creed. The implication is that bitter disputes like those over papal infallibility or Luther’s doctrine of predestination are differences over mere opinion, not over dogmas binding on all the faithful. Johann Heinrich Wettstein (1649–1726), had had an important printing and publishing business. From his office excellent editions of the classics were issued, as well as Gerard of Maastricht's edition of the Greek Testament. [1-10], 11-524 (iv) pp. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
