Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Henricus Glareanus's (1488-1563) Chronologia of the Ancient World contains the table of contents and the preface, and a list of illustrations. The book discusses that in 2007 the Princeton University Library bought a heavily annotated copy of the Chronologia (1540) of the Swiss humanist Henricus Glareanus. The signature on the title page revealed that Gabriel Hummelberg, later a physician in Voralberg, entered the marginal notes. It addresses the following question: whether Glareanus and his students represented a special case, or if similar documents exist for others as well. The presentation of the marginalia is designed to shed light on their origin and promote comparative studies.
