Woodcut mermaid device on title and on recto of terminal leaf; terminal leaf utilized as pastedown, minor worm penetrations to gutters of last few leaves, otherwise a very good, fresh copy.

Text printed in double columns; sporadic modest tanning; small wormtrack and faint tidemark in lower margin of first two gatherings; early ink inscription in upper margin of A2; later inscription on front pastedown; wanting the title, as noted, otherwise a good copy. An attractive copy of an uncommon edition of this widely reprinted collection of Latin sermons. It was first published in 1495, and the long prefatory noted is dated at the end "Apriles 1495." Some subsequent editions incorporated sermons by others. The funeral sermons are divided between those appropriate for common folk (vulgares) and for the learned (litterales). OCLC/Worldcat locates a single copy of this printing of SERMONES FVNEBRES., at UNC. The Augustine sermons are regarded as suppositious, but were widely reprinted. OCLC/Worldcat locates two copies of this edition of that text: Cambridge and Folger. The Cambridge copy is not listed in Adams. OCLC: 52572060 & 54341204.
