Koln: Peter Quentel, 1529. First edition of each title. 2 vols in 1, recent quarter parchment and linen boards, , 167, , 63,  pages;  leaves.

Item #18702
Two works from German presses, the first by the Nausea (ca. 1496-1552), then cathedral preacher at Mainz since 1526 and an anti-Lutheran Catholic reformer and eventual Bishop of Vienna; the second by the Franciscan controversialist Ferber (1485-1534). Small early ink autograph monogram to the title page of the Nausea, evidently dated 1585; a few marginal notes in an early hand, including a manicule. Of copies located on USTC, OCLC and the NUC, Harvard appears to be the only institution in the United States to hold either title. Evidently bound together at an early date prior to the rebinding, with some uniform nibbling to lower corners and outer margins, and light marginal damp-staining across each volume. First leaf of the Nausea title remargined and repaired at the gutter, with loss of several letters in the dedication on the verso; subsequent eight leaves neatly repaired in the gutter at the head, touching a couple of letters. Leaves C4 and C5 in the first title bound out of order. VD16 N243; VD16 F739.
