The most famous humanistic satire in epistolary form by various authors, among whom Ulrich von Hutten and Crotus Rubianus.

This is the most complete edition, enriched with hilarious other tracts, partly in German. - Graesse II, 490.

These comic and bawdy tales and poetry are often found bound together. The second work is a word-play poem completely consisting of words starting with a 'p'. The work is written in a grotesque neo-latin, also incorpating words from vernacular languages (to get enough p-words?), often in bizarre combinations. The last work, originally published in the 16th century, humourously describes the temptations of student-life. The author, who wrote the book as a 19 year old student in Frankfurt, became a more serious theologian, and abstained from this youthful publication. Not unsurprisingly, later editions were published under a rather ridiculous pseudonym.

VALLA, L. Elegantiarum Latinae linguae libri sex. Eiusdem De reciprocatione sui, & suus, libellus. ad veterum denuo codicum fidem ab J. Raenerio emend. omnia. Lyon, G. Beringus, 1545. 402, (30) pp. Mod. limp vellum wrps. (Name scratched out on ti., margins cut, slightly browned).
estimate EUR 300
result EUR 240
Rare edition of Valla's famous work, not listed in Adams, Cat. BN or Baudrier. The latter refers to a 1545 edition published by A. Vincentius and printed by the Beringen brothers, and lists for the Beringen publishers three publications prior to 1545. It is thus an early and rare imprint of Godefroy Beringen alone. - One copy is found in NCC (Maastr.).
