Preceptoriu[m] Nycolai de Lyra: siue Expositio tripharia p[er]utilis,, NICOLAS DE LYRE
2 NICOLAS DE LYRE Preceptoriu[m] Nycolai de Lyra: siue Expositio tripharia p[er]utilis,
1502 Book Small octavo 9.6 x 13cm. Cologne 
Preceptorium Nicolas de Lyre, Cologne, 1502. Peter Christian Kierkegaard's copy (the brother of Sĝren).

NICOLAS DE LYRE, or HENRICUS DE FRIMARIA. Preceptoriu[m] Nycolai de Lyra: siue Expositio tripharia p[er]utilis, in decalogu[m] legis diuine: cu[m] multis pulcerrimis tractatulis... Dec decimis tribuendis. De duodecim articulis fidei. De septem peccatis mortalibus. De triplici modo peccandi in deum. Den operibus misericordie. De natiutiate, vita [et] morte Antichristi. De minde mundei et extrem iudico. Exhortationes faciende infirmo morie[n]ti. Dyalogus Anselmi... Bernardus de planctu bte[n] Marie virginis. Colloquium peccatiris et Crucifixi. Dyalogus Isidori de hominie [et] ratione. Utiles doctrine pro lucrandis animab[us]. [from colophon:] Colonie retro fratres Minores Anno dominice geniture. M.ccccii. [1502] [Matrin von Werden] Small octavo 9.6 x 13cm. $2,250.00

The printer's name is not mentioned, but it is likely the work of Martin von Werden. The Retro Minores press operated from 31 July 1497 to 1504. Proctor attributed the work of this press to Martin Von Werden. BMC, however, suggests that, as the Retro Minores used three of Heinrich Quentell's types and 2 of the same woodcuts, it might have been a branch of Quentell's business. However, following the custom of the time, Quentell and Zel each gave the location of their shop as retro fratres, behind the friars, and identified themselves as the printer. Books printed by von Werden between 1498 and 1506 do not bear his name. However, they do indicate they were produced at the same location as that used by Quentell and Zel, or, as is the case with this book, retro fratres Minores, behind the friars minor. After 1506, von Werden indicated both the location and his name. Von Werden used the same typed as Quentell and Zel, and reprinted woodcuts which originally appeared in their books.

The book has been attributed to Nicolas of Lyra (1270-1349). In modern times it has been assigned it to Henry of Friemar, circa 1245-1340 (Cf. Buchberger.Lexicon f. Theol. u. Kirche. 2nd ed.). Nicolas of Lyra had the greater reputation and is known as one of the great Biblical exegetes. He emphasized the literal meaning of scripture and his work was a strong influence on Luther. Nicholas was a Franciscan.

Henry of Friemar belonged to the same order as Luther, the Order of Hermits of St. Augustine. He was master in theology at the Univ. of Paris. Later he moved to schools at Prague in Saxony, ending his career as Provincial for his order in Thuringia and Saxony.

There are a few notations in the text, and two signatures. The signature at the bottom of A1, the title, appears to be that of P[eter] Chr[istian] Kierkegaard, and the numbers following represent the date of his acquisition of the book, March 20, 1831. Peter Christian (1805-1888) was born eight years before his more famous brother Sĝren, and outlived him by thirty-three years. He was decidedly more conventional in religious matters, serving as the Lutheran Bishop of Alborg for 18 years. He preached the eulogy at his brother's funeral in 1855.

The signature at the top of the first woodcut, A1v, is that of Friedrich Münter, 1761-1830. He is best known as an orientalist and archeologist. Münter was professor of theology at the Univ. of Copenhagen from 1790-1808. He left there to become Bishop of Denmark.

Sladen wrote many travel books, novels and anthologies. We offer his The Japs at Home, an account of his travels in Japan from December 1st through July 6th (1891-92?). He says of the book: "In my months of wandering about the streets and lanes of Japan, I kodaked with camera and pen a few phases of Japanese life, which I here present that you may see The Japs at Home as I saw them... Whatever struck me as interesting or amusing I noted down on the pad affixed to the top of my kodak-case,--an addition all kodakers should have... I have not wittingly asserted anything which is not a fact, and when I make an unsupported assertion only state it as my impression. The sojourner among a secretive people cannot easily do more..."--from "To the Reader."
