[ALBERUS, Erasmus] [c1500-1553].
L'Alcoran Des Cordeliers. Tant en latin qu'en François. C'Est À Dire Recueil Des plus notables bourdes & blasphèmes de ceux qui ont osé comparer Sainct François à Jésus Christ: tiré du grand livre des Conformitez.
Amsterdam: 'Aux Dépens De La Compagnie', 1734..
2 Volumes. 12mo. pp. 9 p.l., 396; 1 p.l., 419. titles in red & black. 22 engraved plates by Bernard Picart (1 folding; incl. 2 frontis.). 19th century half vellum, gilt backs (vellum slightly soiled, outer edge of frontis. in Vol. I chipped outside plate mark, few small library markings). First Edition Illustrated by Bernard Picart. The first part of the work was written by reformer Erasmus Alberus, who selected for critical assessment the most 'blasphemous' passages from the De Conformitate Vitae Beati Francisci ad Vitam Domini Jesu of Bartolomeo degli Albizzi. It was originally published anonymously as Der barfusser Monche Eulenspiegel und Alkoran in Wittenberg in 1542, with a preface by Martin Luther. The French translation, by Calvinist printer Conrad Badius, who erroneously attributed the whole work to Luther, was published in Geneva in 1556. In his second edition (1560), Bade acknowledged his error and added a continuation. The present edition is distinguished by twenty-two fine copper engravings by Bernard Picart. The frontispiece to Volume I is composed of satirical emblems and the second (folding) plate depicts the mystical tree, whose leaves contain the forty points of comparison between the lives of St. Francis and Jesus Christ. These two volumes are sometimes found with another work by Nicolas Vignier, entitled Légende dorée ou Sommaire De L'Histoire des frères Mendians de l'Ordre de St. Dominique et de S. François (Amsterdam: 1734). Brunet I 152. Cohen-de Ricci 5-6. Graesse I 64. Lewine p. 6. Rothschild II 2024 (listed with another work).

St. Augustine's Confessions: With the Continuation of his Life, Extracted out of Possidius, and the Father's own unquestioned Works. Translated into English.
np [Oxford?]: 1679..
8vo. pp. 2 p.l., 402, [blank leaf], 425-501, blank, incl. table & errata [pp. 426-500 omitted in pagination]. old calf, rebacked (light dampmark to upper margins of first half). First Complete Edition of this English translation by Roman Catholic controversialist Abraham Woodhead [1609-1678]. The first part, consisting of the Confessions, was first published in 1660 under the title The Life of St. Augustine, while the second, relating Augustine's life after his conversion, is based on the work of his friend and domestic, Possidius, and other of Augustine's works. "The Confessions is the first great autobiography in which personal confession and revelations are linked with the spirit of Christian piety and devotion. It was written soon after Augustine became Bishop of Hippo in 397, and none of his other writings, apart from The City of God, has been more universally read or admired. Its strength of thought and confession of weakness have been a constant support to Christians ever since." (Printing and the Mind of Man) Wing A4207. cfPrinting and the Mind of Man 7.
