Limited edition of 100 copies. Text in Latin and English. “This letter, composed by Erasmus at hutten’s request, is the earliest biography of the now canonized Sir Thomas more. The original can not be traced but the greater part of this epistle was first publishd in 1536 and it has been incorporated, with varying degrees of acknowledgement, in all the biographies from nicholas harpsfield to Professor chambers. But apparently it has only once before been completely Englished, viz. by Francis morgan nichols, and buried in the third volume of his Epistles of Erasmus. This translation was made by miss Laverne madigan.” (Printer’s note).


A handsomely edition printed by Frederic Warde.
