Written while Boethius was in prison, in the period leading up to his brutal execution, this is a dialogue of alternating prose and verse between the ailing prisoner and his 'nurse' Philosophy, whose instruction on the nature of fortune and happiness, good and evil, fate and free will, restore his health and bring him to enlightenment. The clarity of the author's thought and his breadth of vision made this book hugely popular throughout medieval Europe and his ideas suffused the thought of Chaucer and Dante

The shyp of folys by Sebastian Brant( Book )

5 editions published between 1497 and 1498 in Latin and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The famous fifteenth-century satire on mankind's weaknesses and follies, "The Ship of Fools"/"Das Narrenschiff", composed in humorous verse by the German humanist Sebastian Brant, was first published in Base! by Johann Bergmann in 1494. Illustrated by woodcuts, many of which authorities now believe were designed by Albrecht Durer, it was immediately taken up by other printers and several unauthorized reprints using the original woodcuts appeared in other German cities in the same year. - In 1497 a Latin translation done by Brant?s friend Jacob Locher was published by the original printer. - This copy is dated 1498. The volume contains one hundred and seventeen woodcuts, the first in the book bearing the date 1497 as does Bergmann?s device which follows the colophon. - The device shows a lion with a shield bearing six hills surmounted by a fleur-de-lis, which is surrounded by a scroll 'Nihil Sine Causa', the date, and another scroll 'lo. Bergman Dc Olpe.' There are ornamental side borders. The binding is of wooden boards, with calf back tooled in blind. The catch and clasp are missing."--[from 1973 Dysart Exhibition Catalogue]
