Mediaeval lore from Bartholomew Anglicus by Bartholomaeus( Book )

21 editions published between 1905 and 2013 in English and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The medieval treatise On the Properties of Things (De proprietatibus rerum) normally attributed to Bartholomaeus Anglicus, was actually written by Bartholomaeus de Glanvilla, a 13th century Franciscan monk living in Paris, who was also known as Bartholomaeus Anglicus (Bartholomew of England). On the Properties of Things is a type of proto-encyclopedia, covering a wide range of subjects including religion, sciences, and medicine. It was widely copied and read during the Middle Ages. With the advent of printing De proprietatibus rerum became an even more popular work of reference. This edition, the earliest in the Lane Library, was printed by Anton Koberger of Nuremberg in 1483. Prior to this printing there were seven other editions printed, beginning in 1472. The Lane copy is in a contemporary binding of blind-stamped pigskin over oak boards, rebacked.--J. Norman, 2006

"First printed in 1476, this collection of stories, or "little flowers," chronicles Saint Francis of Assisi's journeys, activities, and miracles. Told in brief anecdotes of charming simplicity, the stories include Saint Francis' sermon to the birds, his taming of the savage wolf of Gubbio, his conversion of the Sultan of Babylon, and his miraculous healing of a leper. Picturesque and poetic, The Little Flowers of Saint Francis transports readers to the Middle Ages for an inspiring portrait of the saint and his earliest disciples. One of the world's most popular and widely read religious classics, its universal appeal extends to people of all faiths and every intellectual level." - Back cover
