¶ St. Jerome — Epistolae et tractatus (n.d.)

November 1, 2017

Comments Off on ¶ St. Jerome — Epistolae et tractatus (n.d.)

Jerome, Saint [Hieronymus]. Epistolae et tractus. 2 vols. Venice: Rubeus?, n.d.

We are unable to identify this book, because the Sotheby 1898 catalogue is vague about both the publisher and date. The ISTC lists several late fifteenth-century editions of Jerome’s Epistolae, but none of them seems to fit the description below. (Rubeus, for example, did issue the book in 1496 [ISTC], but the text is single-column rather than double.)
