[Palma (Georg), 1543-1591] Du Rosier (Simon); Ochino (Bernardino), 1487-1564
Antithesis de præclaris Christi et indignis Papæ facinoribus, cum Dei decalogis mandatis Antichristi oppositis, cumque utriusque morum descriptione : quemadmodum Sancta Scriptura tradit
[Geneva], Zacharie Durant, 1557
Album amicorum of the humanist-physician Georg Palma (1543-1591), in the form of a printed book, interleaved with blank paper for autograph inscriptions of his fellow-students at the university of Wittenberg, in the years 1561 to 1564. Hitherto unknown, this newly recovered Stammbuch is a significant contribution to our knowledge of Georg Palma's academic friendships – paternal friends, mentors, patrons, and fellow students. Academic alba amicorum of early date, emanating from Wittenberg, containing autograph entries from students who directly felt Melanchthon's influence, are few in number, and virtually unknown in the marketplace.
