Abstract

Iohannes Trithemius (Iohann Trittheim, 1462-1516), abbot of Spannheim, Catalogus Scriptorum Ecclesiasticorum .... Pr. Peter Quentell, Cologne, 1531. The first edition of this famous bibliographical work was printed in 1494. It is an index of Christian Latin authors, in alphabetical order, each entry supplying brief biographical details and a list of the author’s writings. It is still an important reference tool for information about the many medieval German authors it lists. At the head of the first leaf, cropped by the binder, is an early ownership inscription: ‘Libellus Friscisci Fusci Gr. in Oberndorff pastor’ (‘The book of ?Fritz Fust, pastor of Gr. in Oberndorff’). Unfortunately there are several places named Oberndorf in Germany and Austria. Owned by the Jesuit College at Worms in 1767. Bought in Munich in 1932 by Richard W. Hunt, later Keeper of Western Manuscripts at the Bodleian Library, Oxford; acquired from his estate by the University of Tasmania in 1982. Cent Rare Z 7783 .A2 T7 1531.
