¶ Boethius — De consolatione philosophie (1498)

November 1, 2017

Comments Off on ¶ Boethius — De consolatione philosophie (1498)

Boethius. De consolatione philosophiae. Lyons: Jean de Vingle, 20 April 1498.

There is some confusion about this book: the Sotheby 1898 catalogue (see below) describes it as being published by Maillet in 1489, but Poynter and the Wellcome catalogue identify de Vingle as the publisher and 1498 as the date.

Provenance: Sir Thomas Knyvett. — Thomas Tanner. — Morris. — Richard Bennett. — Sotheby 1898, lot 95 (sold to Henry Wellcome for £1 4s.). — Henry Wellcome. — Wellcome Library (Closed stores EPB Incunabula 2.c.15 (SR)).

References: ISTC (ib00808000). — MS catalogue (2), no. 855 (with two X’s beside the title). — Poynter, no. 149.
