Des. Erasmi Rot. Operum septimus tomus Paraphrases In universum Novum Testamentum continens
Basileae: Ex officina Frobeniana. 1540. "Folio, pp. [12], 854, [2]; 4- to 10-line woodcut initials throughout; 18th century full paneled calf, rebacked in brown calf with maroon morocco label on spine; corners worn and showing, endpapers renewed, small library rubberstamp at base of title, verso of b3, and recto of d4; occasional neat annotations and underlines in a 16th-century hand, ownership signatures on title page of Thomas Durham of Edinburgh (1811), and Marcus Dods (1856), and on the verso of the title page a presentation from Durham ""with best regards"" to a name which has been effaced; a very good, sound, and complete copy of the seventh volume of Erasmus's collected works. The complete included nine volumes, published 1539-40. ""Erasmus was not content with the simple, more or less factual annotation of the New Testament, but went on to paraphrase, which enabled him to soar high and dig deeper. His paraphrases had the advantage of being a relatively new form when they were written, and they were so-well liked and became so popular that edition after edition was called for during his lifetime and after his death"" (Houghton Library, Erasmus on the 500th Anniversary of his Birth, 1969). See Adams E-309; Bezzel, Erasmusdrucke des 16. Jahrhunderts in Bayerischen Bibliotheken, no. 11."
