Erasmi opuscula : A supplement to the Opera omnia. Introduction and notes by Wallace K. Ferguson
The Hague, Martinus Nijhoff, 1933
(25 cm), xiii (3), 373 (1) pp. Publisher’s cloth. - Designed as a supplement to the standard edition of the Opera omnia Erasmi, edited by Jean Le Clerc (Leiden 1703-1706), which omits a number of shorter works (some still in manuscript, others published anonymously, or in rare or obscure editions). The most important of the treatises given here is the Apologia qua respondet duabus invectivis Edwardi Lei. English introductions to the fourteen Latin texts by the editor, in some cases offering proof of Erasmian authorship. ¶ Excellent, unmarked copy.
