|Bound with:||When acquired by Hunter, this copy of the Consolatio peccatorum was bound with a copy of Gesta Romanorum [Cologne: Printer of the 'Flores Sancti Augustini' (Johann Schilling), for William Caxton, 1472] (G37) - see Hunter’s undated manuscript note tipped-in at the front of his copy of Gesta Romanorum: “This book I met with in a sale bound up with J. de Theranio [sic] Consolatio Peccatorum printed at Colonia 1474. The Type & paper the same, & therefore no doubt the printer, viz Joh. Veldener”. Hunter had the two incunabules rebound separately in identical bindings.|
