Not illustrated. 1823 edition. Excerpt: ...hoc It is certain, that Erasmus had lost in Dr. Colet a generous patron, as well as a learned friend. No wonder then that his concern was so great for his death, and that he never after relished England so much as to return to it again. The friend who was most desirous to see the life of Dr. Colet drawn up by Erasmus, was the famous Jodocus, or Justus Jonas, of the university of Erdford. He earnestly importuned him to it; and to satisfy him, Erasmus, when he had got the best intelligence he could out of England, drew up A Narrative of the Birth, Education, Studies, Conversation, good Works, and Sufferings of Dr. John Colet, (consisting mostly of his own experiences.) To which he prefixed the Ufe and character of John Vitrier, a Franciscan friar, a man of admirable piety and virtues; and one, it seems, who had so great a veneration for the name of Colet, that he went over into England, on purpose to see and be acquainted with so great a man; but the misfortune was, he carried over another Franciscan friar with him, who being a sour Scotist, or stoical disputant, broke in upon Colet and Vitrier, and interrupted the conversation, which was prudent, pious, and very agreeable P. These two lives Erasmus put together in an epistle to the said Jodocus Jonas, at Erphord, rector of that university; etiam magis amplectere, quod bat Coletus, apud se Mi Coletus avulsus dimidiatum re-noritam quendum, cujus collo liquit.
