    More Information: Murner (1475-1537) "learned Franciscan friar, satirized in his writings the follies of the age and, in later years,attacked Luther and the Reformation....Murner wrote fluent and racy verse, employing homely images and familiar proverbs."[OCGL] This is a version of the "Die Schelmenzufft." [1512] which "is a rogue's gallery and is appropriately bitter in tone." Johann Flittner translated the work into Latin as 'Nebulo Nebulorum"[1610] and here it is translated into German prose from that version. Rare versions none in OCLC and KVK shows only two German entries. The pagination in Hayn/Gotendorf is incorrect, all copies located agree with ours. VD17 12:642215X.
