The printing of the 'Sermón de Amores' of Cristóbal de Castillejo

Dennis E. Rhodes

Abstract

This book, printed in 1542 with no imprint, is a quarto of twenty leaves, having the unusual collation a20. Three gothic types are employed, and there is a woodcut on the last leaf verso, which we shall mention later. Despite the words 'Agora nueuamente corregido y enmendado', there seems to be no trace of an earlier edition. The work is anonymous, but the author is known to be Cristobal de Castillejo, who was born at Ciudad Rodrigo most probably in 1490, and died at Vienna on 12 June 1550. He is buried at Wiener Neustadt.
