>1 benjclark: Ooh, that'd be a neat catalog to have. What do we think—find a copy of Vol. 2 (which sounds like the written catalog, I think) at a library and go from there?

Well, since it's very much within copyright, we'd need the okay from the author if we were going to use this book as the basis for an LT catalog.

>3 JBD1: Surely it might be considered good publicity? Definitely worth asking the author. Is that something that should come from an LT staff member? (I have no idea how these sorts of permissions work.)

We've had varying degrees of success with these requests over the years. Some folks have been perfectly delighted, and others have ... decidedly not been.

In this particular case, it looks like the original scholar died in 1998 and the volume was edited by two other scholars; since it's only just come out in English, though, I would suggest that we might give it a few more months, and then we can write to the editors and see if they'd be willing to have an LT catalog as a complement to the printed text.

>6 JBD1: Great suggestion. I've set a calendar reminder. :)

This book has been on the proverbial wishlist for some time. I haven't had the opportunity to look at it yet, but I have browsed Fritz Husner's 'Die Bibliothek des Erasmus' in Gedenkschrift zum 400. Todestage des Erasmus von Rotterdam. Basil (1936) pp. 228-259. Husner provides a list of titles taken from Erasmus' writings, which, I would guess, van Gulik bult upon.
