1520 Malleus Maleficarum on eBay

We’re not known for posting information about eBay sales, to say the least, but I thought this once I would mention that there is a 1520 Latin edition of the Malleus Maleficarum for sale on eBay. The book is the “Fifteenth edition, Third Cologne printing”, and is the only 16th century edition of the Malleus currently available for sale. WorldCat lists only 8 copies of this edition in U.S. libraries.
I thought I would mention this. Anyone who is interested in the Malleus Maleficarum would no doubt find this eBay sale intriguing. Especially given the number of excellent photographs that were posted. If you want to see what a 16th century edition of the Malleus Maleficarum looks like, this is a wonderful opportunity.
For my own part, I’m going to watch this auction. It will be most interesting to see who bids on this volume, what the winning bid will be, and who the winning bidder is. Hopefully it will fall into the hands of a museum that can properly take care of the work.
