The prefatory epistles of Jacques Lefèvre d’Etaples and related texts
New York & London, Columbia University Press, 1972
(24 cm), xl, 629 pp. Publisher’s cloth (no dust jacket issued). - Introduction by the editor on Lefèvre’s life – Aristotelian, mystic, don, Biblical exegete and translator – followed by 152 texts, a bibliography of Lefèvre’s works, and indices of names, Latin words, and Scriptural quotations. “A work of meticulous scholarship; the critical apparatus, the bibliography, the very full notes, the useful indices, make it into a mine of readily accessible information… It is a tool which few Renaissance scholars would care to be without, whatever their field of primary interest. It is to be hoped that it will long remain in print for future scholars to buy” (from a review by M.A. Screech, in The Sixteenth Century Journal, volume 10, Spring, 1979, pp.111-112). ¶ Excellent, unmarked copy.
