Fratris Hieronymi Savonarolae Ferrarie[n]sis expositiones in psalmos. Qui regis israel. Miserere mei deus. In te domine speravi. Item: Regulae quedam fructuosissimae ad omnes religiosos attinentes. Oratio, vel psalmus, Diligam te domine.
A neat, attractive compilation of several of Savonarola's writings including his exposition on St. Ambrose's rendering of Psalm 80 into a hymn on the Virgin Birth; his famous, extended essay on the Penitential Psalm beginning "Miserere mei Deus," written in prison after he had confessed to heresy under torture; and a meditation on Psalm 31 that he had not quite finished at the time of his execution, this being the psalm beginning in the KJV, "In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed . . ." Also present is a printing of his Regulae septem ad omnes religiosos, a brief and strict rule for priests, friars, and brothers wishing to live a proper life. Title-page in roman type and with a large woodcut of Savonarola in his cell writing (Savonarola on the left, window without bars). The text is printed in gothic with three large woodcut initials. => The printer's large, handsome device appears below the colophon. "Novissime cum textuu[m] annotationibus omnia diligenter recognita."
