FIRST and probably only edition of this extremely rare anonymous theological work on the importance of forgiveness, attractively printed by the most cultivated and active member of the Nicolini da Sabbio family. He also worked at Rome and founded Giberti's Greek press at Verona, where he printed fourteen patristic works between 1529 and 1532. Not in Sander/Rava, BLSTC Italian, etc. NUC locates only the copy at the Library of Congress.
