“When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.”

― Erasmus

 

In 1509, Erasmus composed his famous essay ‘In Praise of Folly’ which was a satirical attack on superstitions and other unconventional traditions in European society. Since its inception in the early 16th-century, it is considered one of the most important works of the Renaissance and helped develop early stages of the Protestant Reformation.

 

Erasmus uses satire to examine doctrine and corruption within the Catholic Church, even though Erasmus was devoted deeply to Catholicism. He concludes ‘In Praise of Folly’ with statements of supporting Christian Protestantism. He frequently references Greek mythological creatures and figures.

 

This rare 17th-century edition was published in 1685 by Henry Wetstein. An impressive first edition!
