Catalogue Note

RARE. This fourteenth-century Franciscan devotional text is now attributed to Pseudo-Bonaventure. Another version of the Italian text is known, with the text ending "scripto di me nele prophetie e psalmi". Both of these translations, as well as the Latin original and translations into other languages, were printed numerous times in the fifteenth century.

Henricus (Hendrik) de Harlem was associated with a group of northern (German and Dutch) printers active in the 1480s in Padua, Ferrara, Bologna, Siena and possibly Venice.
