Note 1 Abridged version of the great work of Erasmus, Adagiorum chiliades (1st edited by: Basel 1520; 1st edited by of the abridged version: Louvain, Th. Martens, 1521).
Note 2 The Plantin-edition of 1564 is a re-impression of the one of 1553 of S. Gryphius, Lyons (but without the foreword of Gryphius), itself a reprint of the Gryphius edition of 1544, which in its turn copied the edition of Cologne, J. Gymnicus, 1542 (being the Epitome arranged by Theodericus Cortehoevius [1st edited by: Antwerp, M. de Keyser, 1530] in the Antwerp-edition of 1540, completed by Eberhardus Tappius and Conradus Brunssenius).
Note 3 The cost-accounting note in Arch. 4, folio 65, gives the following details about 'Adagiorum Erasmi Epitome in 8⁰': the wages for composing and printing are entered from 5 March till 24 June 1564, and amount to 69 florins Carolus guilders 2 stuivers (including 6 stuivers 'pour la copie impression de Griphius', and 4 florins Carolus guilders 4 stuivers 'pour la faceon de l'index au table à mectre les nombres'). As each copy contains 32¾ (= in fact 32¼) quires and as 1,250 copies were printed, 83 reams of paper (including the 'imperfections') were used, in two kinds: 1⁰) 'et est faict de 77 rames 10 mains restantes du papier petit bastard de Rouen qui couste 20 stuivers la rame mais en faut oster les mains de dessus et de dessoubs qui sont cassées qui font 7 rames 15 mains lesquelles i 'estime à 15 stuivers la rame qui feroit 37 stuivers, moins lesquels 37 stuivers faut adiouxter sur le bon (?) imprimé qui sont 69 rames et 15 mains qui par ainsi reviennent à 71 florins Carolus guilders 12 stuivers; 2⁰) 'Item 13 rames 5 mains de Pericart', which, at 1 florins Carolus guilders 4 stuivers per ream, came to 15 florins Carolus guilders 18 stuivers, bringing the total expenses for the paper to 87 florins Carolus guilders 10 stuivers, and the overall costs to 156 florins Carolus guilders 12 stuivers
