Scarce first edition of this collection of Gregory of Nazianzus’ ten letters.

An early Johann Knobloch imprint, with his woodcut device at the end. The texts were translated from Greek by Tyrannius Rufinus, and the book was edited by Johannes Adelphus (ca. 1480–1523) the German physician and humanist author. Considered as an important text among the humanists, both Beatus Rhenanus and Huldrych Zwingli held a copy in their libraries.

Although no bibliographies mention any variants, the present copy slightly differs from all other we could compare it to (BL; BSB; NK ČR Prague; ÖNB; Univ.bibl. Jena; ZB Zürich). For instance the present copy, unlike others, lacks the roman numerals in the signature mark on b2, thus we suppose our copy is an earlier imprint than those.
