Reformacion der Bayrisch[e]n Lanndrecht: Nach Cristj Unsers Hailmachers Geburde Im[m] Funftzehenhundert unnd Achtzehendm Jar Aufgericht. [Munich: Johann Schobsser, 1518]. [xxxv], 168 ff.

(Fol 1. is a divisional title page.) Nearly full-page arms of Freiburg to title pages and full-page images of the patron saints of Freiburg by Holbein on recto and verso of both title pages, double-page woodcut table of descents, woodcut decorated initials. Folio (12-1/4" x 8"). Contemporary half-paneled pigskin over beveled wooden boards, pigskin clasps with bronze buckles, raised bands and early hand-lettered title to spine, head and tail repaired, a scattering of worm holes through boards and text block. Light soiling, some wear to corners, front hinge cracked, twentieth-century owner bookplate and bookseller description to front pastedown. Reformacion printed throughout in red and black. Light toning to text, negligible faint dampstaining and foxing in a few places, light edgewear to some leaves, early repairs to a fol. 20 of Reformacion. Early annotations in a few places, interior otherwise clean. A very handsome volume. * First editions. Two important collections of German statutes. Enacted in 1518, the Bavarian Reformacion revised the Bavarian law code of 1346. It is notable, in part, because it incorporated input solicited by the Dukes of Bavaria from representative groups of subjects. The 1520 edition of Freiburg statutes is a comprehensive restatement by Zasius, a leading German humanist and friend of Erasmus. A leading jurist, he was one of the first jurists to apply modern philological methods to the study of Roman and older Germanic law. Both titles are scarce.
