    Erasmus in sheets.

    Erasmus, Enquiridio manual del Cavallero Cristiano. Toledo, en casa de Jua Ferrer, 2 December 1556.

    "The Spanish translation of the Enchiridion that issued from the press of Miguel de Eguia, printer in Alcala, had a popular success without precedent in the history of Spanish printing up to that time. The translator was a famous preacher, Alonso Fernadez de Madrid, canon of the Cathedral of Palencia and archdeacon of Alcor. It first appeared in the spring of 1525 with a dedication to the Archbishop of Seville, Don Alonso Manrique, inquisitorgeneral. With such a translator and such a patron the book had a most auspicious beginning” Charles Fantazzi.
