Ioannes Gymnecus, Cologne 1536 - 56 prelims, 608 pp., 127 pp (misnumbered: begins 5, 4, 5 to 127). Contemporary embossed vellum with intact brass clasps. Three works included in one volume. Title page missing but otherwise complete as collated against BSB 1133964 (OCLC 220615439). A photocopy of the title page is laid in. Title and author written on fore-edge. Spine has title, author and library number (probably 17th C) and remnant of later library label. Binding is very secure. Handwritten notations on front pastedown. Text block is square and remarkably clean, toned but not foxed. Very good or better copy of Valla's important work on the elegance of the Latin language (1471). This analysis was the basis for Humanists to reform Latin prose to a more classical style very different from the ecclesiastical style that had evolved. His knowledge and analysis of the language allowed him to establish that the Donation of Constantine was a forgery, perhaps his most famous work. Three works are included in this volume: (1) Laurentii Vallae viri tam Graece quam Latinae linguae doctissimi, Elegantiarum Libri omnes apprime Ăștiles, scholiis quibusdam ubi hactenus mendosi fuere illustrati, per Gybertum Longolium.
