Note:Rare first edition of these mystical dialogues on the nature and salvation of man, collected by the Dutch Carthusian friar Petrus Dorlandus (1454-1507) from Diest in Brabant, to whom the authorship of the famous Dutch play Elckerlyc has sometimes been attributed. The present work consists of seven dialogues, six of which are inspired by the 'Theologia Naturalis' of the Spanish mystical philosopher Raymundus de Sabunde (died 1432). The seventh dialogue is entitled 'Dialogus inter Marian et Dominicum de mysteriis passioninis Christi' and appears to be an original work of Dorlandus. Contains four neolatin epigrams, the one of the verso of the title is by Mattaeus Herbenus, rector of the S. Sevatius school in Maastricht and musical theoris (cf. Eitner V, 115). A few contemporary marginal annotations including a small drawing in red of a ladder. Attractive, large copy of this interesting work
