VALLUS, Furius. In Rolandinum Pistrini vernam illaudatum. [Milan: Joannes Angelus Scinzenzeler, c.1500.]

Chancery 2° (276 x 196mm). Roman and a little Greek type, initial spaces with guide-letter. (A little stained at the end.) Vellum binding made from part of a leaf of an 18th-century antiphonal.

The rare pseudonymous reply, written in pure invective, to Rolandinus Panatus's equally immoderate attack on Parrhasius's commentary on Claudianus' Carmen de raptu Proserpinae. Reichling 1414; not in BMC; Goff V-87 (Huntington only).
