It seems, that this is the first separate edition of any of Lefevre’s introductions to Aristotle – in October 1506 only an edition of the introduction to the Nicomachean ethics was published in Venice. Edited by Henricus Stromer (also: Henricus Auerbach), in 1508 Rector of Leipzig University. Lefevre’s introduction is printed in double line spacing like in a Vorlesungsdruck, Clichtove’s commentary has the usual setting. The book seems to be rare: catalogues, online and printed, show 7 copies only: Stanford, Stockholm, Budapest, and four in German libraries. – VD16 L-964.
