On the four issues of this edition (i.e. the two states of H 4411* (A and B), H 4411a (C) and its later re-issue (D)), see F. Geissler: Die Inkunabeln des Directorium vitae humanae, Beiträge zur Inkunabelkunde, Dritte Folge, 1 (1965) pp. 7-47. According to P. Needham, H 4411a is a separable, later edition while Geissler's second state of H 4411 has 'only scattered in-press forme corrections. They do not distinguish a separate issue' (Sotheby's NY, 17 Dec. 1992, lot 13).
A translation of the Fables of Bidpai; also known as the Fables of Kalila and Dimna (Goff).
