VOCABULARIUS RERUM.
Vocabularius rerum latinoteutonicus. Augsburg: Johann Keller, 1478.
Folio (295 x 205 mm). 126 leaves: a2 b-i8 k10 l6 m-p8 q-r6. Large gothic type. Incipit leaf with 7-line initial and capital strokes in red. 18th century quarter calf, morocco spine label. Worm-holes (trailing on first 10 leaves), marginal staining at end, two leaves with tears from margins, overall rubbing to binding, joints started.

RARE, ANONYMOUS DICTIONARY, organized into 65 thematic categories. There is only one other record in ABPC, likely this same copy sold at Bloomsbury in 1986. One of the earliest fruits of Keller's short-lived press. Hain's attribution of the authorship to Wenceslaus Brack is erroneous. BMC II 360; Goff V324; GW M51210; HC 3699.
