Strasbourg: P.H. Heitz, 1960. First Edition. 8vo. [4], 107, [1] pp. Original printed wrappers, edges uncut. NOT ex-library! Very good. Item #3150

Compiled by the unsurpassed authority on early printing and humanism in Strasbourg and Alsace-Lorraine. For obvious reasons, the present work is indispensable for all students and scholars of Alsatian humanism. ¶ The present catalogue lists 718 Strasbourg books printed in the 15th century. Ritter gives author / title / printer / date / and references to other sources where the work is described in detail. The work is published as Part III of the "Repertoire Bibliographique des Livres imprimes en Alsace."

A note on Ritter's presentation: the names of German speaking authors are given in their native German, but all others appear in Latin. Therefore, we look for Petrus Paludanus (not Pierre de la Palud); Bertrandus de Turre (not Petrus Aureolus); and Guilelmus Parisiensis (not Guillaume d'Auvergne, Bishop of Paris).

¶ From the famed Bibliotheca Bibliographica Breslaueriana (sale at Christies NY, 2005, lot 1235), with Bernard Breslauer's circled accession number in pencil on the front wrapper.

Price: $50.00
