Bound very tightly. Manuscript inscriptions on title obscured with ink. Fine. Early sixteenth century edition of this text from the theologian Antonio Rampegollo printed in Strasbourg by Johannes Knobloch I (d.1528). Knobloch started printing as early as 1497 and was responsible for much of the printing and publishing in this town for the rest of his life, then his son Johannes Knobloch II, continued the business. The text for this edition was previously printed in Cologne by Cornelius von Zierickzee [1505 and 1511]. Perhaps it is significant to point out that the German Reformation, initiated by Martin Luther, began with his Ninety-five Theses issued in 1517, just after this work being printed. "De Diablo": The extensive section [ff.69-78] on the devil discusses his place in the Bible, exorcism, and witchcraft.
