manuscript superior to another, and partly because there was not yet an articulated theory of textual emendation and editing. But Erasmus learned from his mistakes: the revised edition of any one of his major editions is always an improvement over the earlier one.

For all of this, the unique association with Froben is at the heart of the matter, and Erasmus' tributes to Froben upon his death in 1527 express the closeness of their relationship and the depth of his respect, even love, for the great master-printer who had helped Erasmus to become a master-editor. Within a short span of two years after his arrival in Basel a number of Erasmus' long-term ambitions would be brought to fruition: the editing of Jerome's letters and the writing of a life of Jerome, and the editing of the New Testament, and several other projects.


Notes
1)
CWE 6:255/15-181; Allen III, 494/14-17. The names of Faust, Scheffer [sic], along with those of Albert, Frederick, and Tzobel ( Zobel) are in large caps that stand out on the printed page: see the illustration facing p. 255 in CWE 6.
2)
CWE 3:48/5-6; Allen II, 36/4 -- 37/5. Allen notes that Ep. 314 is 'the answer to a letter written from Basle on the same date as Ep. 301 and narrating the events of the journey', but that is a letter not preserved.
3)
See BR and Miriam U. Chrisman, Strasbourg and the Reform ( 1967) and Lay Culture, Learned Culture ( 1982), both discussed in Dickens and Tonkin, The Reformation in Historical Thought ( 1985) 302-3.
4)
See Nicodemus Frischlin, Julius Redivivus ( 1585). Erasmus is mentioned in III.1.
5)
Given that Schürer and Erasmus probably met in July or August 1509, when Erasmus was on his way from Italy to England, post-1509 printings were therefore doubtless done with Erasmus' permission.
6)
See Allen, 'Erasmus' Relations with his Printers', 125.
7)
CWE 8:219/76; Allen IV, 500/69-70. This letter was public, for it was the preface to the 1521 edition of Erasmus' letters. Erasmus wrote (to quote more fully): 'And so in this business {of preparing the correspondence for publication} I implore you in the name of our friendship, dear Beatus, the most learned of my friends, to be in truth my second self and to do for me what I should have done myself had it been possible'.
8)
Is it not most likely that Erasmus was Beatus' model in this sense of vocation? Beatus' master at Paris, Lefèvre d'Etaples, in later life lived in a monastery ( BR).
9)
The account in John F. D'Amico, Theory and Practice in Renaissance Textual Criticism ( 1988) needs to be supplemented by the valuable article by Robert Walter (whose dissertation on Beatus seems to be unknown in the UK and North America): "'Une amitié humaniste: Érasme et Beatus Rhenanus'", Annuaire de la Société des Amis de la Bibliothèque Humaniste deSélestat
