Erasmus and his books by Egbertus van Gulik( )

9 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What became of Erasmus' books? The most famous scholar of his day died in peaceful prosperity and in the company of celebrated and responsible friends. His zeal for useful books was insatiable. Indeed, he had taken care to insure that after his death they would pass to an appreciative noble owner, yet after his death their fate was unknown. Erasmus and His Books provides the most comprehensive evidence available about the books of Erasmus of Rotterdam - the books he owned and his attitude towards them, when and how he acquired them, how he housed, used, and cared for them, and how, from time to time, he disposed of them. Part 1 details the formation, growth, scope, and arrangement of Erasmus' library and opens the door to a new understanding of the more intimate side of his daily life as a scholar at home with his books, friends, publishers, and booksellers. Part 2 presents a carefully annotated catalogue, the Versandliste, of the more than 400 books in Erasmus' possession at one point. Drawing upon his command of bibliographical data and his extensive knowledge of Erasmus' correspondence and related records, Egbertus van Gulik proposes as precise an identification of each of the titles as the evidence will allow."--Résumé de l'éditeur

Thomas More : a short biography by James McConica( Book )

12 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This portrait is intended, in a phrase of Erasmus, to provide 'not so much a picture as an outline sketch' of the character and career of a man long held inhigh esteem by Englishmen. Such originality as it may claim, therefore, reposes in interpretation and emphasis. My aim is to present a reliable introduction to a vast subject where others have written with greater authority, to whom I am indebted."--Preface
