Very early printing of Schürer edition of the Adagia, preceeded only by the unauthorized edition of 1510. Small 4to (mm 197x142), in vellum backed marbled boards, with vellum corner pieces, lettered on the spine in manuscript. [4ff], 57ff, [7ff] pp. An extremely well preserved example of this rare and important work, very minor occasional stains as expected, neat corner repairs to the last few pages of the index, neat reattachment of the opening leaf, occasional old marginalia, the binding very attractive and proper. A VERY EARLY EDITION OF ERASMUS, PRINTED BY HIS FAITHFUL FRIEND, MATTHIAS SCHURER. Schürer learned the printer's trade with Martin Flach, his cousin, then Hans Knoblauch, his uncle. He published Huminist texts almost exclusively and would publish 15 works of Erasmus in over seventy editions. It is interesting that his relationship with Erasmus began with a rather rough start. Schürer first published a 1510 edition of the Adagia without authorization and from a purloined copy of the first edition of 1500. The ADAGIA is Erasmus's heavily annotated collection of Greek and Latin proverbs. It is "one of the most monumental . ever assembled" - Speroni. The work reflects a typical Renaissance attitude toward classical texts: to wit, that they were fit for appropriation and amplification, as expressions of a timeless wisdom first uncovered by the classical authors. It is, as well, an expression of the new Humanism. The ADAGIA could only have been possible in the new world of European education, in which careful attention to a broader range of classical texts produced a much fuller picture of the literature of antiquity than had been possible. Its impact has been long lasting. Expressions such as; One step at a time, between a rock and a hard place, break the ice, an iron in the fire, looking a gift horse in the month, and countless other examples can all trace their origin in modern usage to the ADAGIA.
