Estelrich, Vives. Exposition a la Bibl. Nationale, Paris 1941, no. 152; Nijhoff-Kronenberg no. 2171; Adams V-953. This edition not in the exhibition catalogue Vives te Leuven, Leuven 1993; González, Vives Edicions princeps. Valencia 1992 no. 30 (the Gent copy).

Provenance: A few contemporary annotations an underlinings. The copy has very special markings: a tiny scrap of blue paper is pasted in the white margins to mark a sentence or passage important to the then reader, see photos. I have never seen this kind of marks in books; nothing comparable is found in Roger Stoddard’s exhibition catalogue Marks in books.
