Online bibliographical references
Note 1 Funeral oration of Antonius Augustinus, Archbishop of Tarragona (who from c. 1584 until his death in 1586 had been the host of Schottus), with some other texts related to the late archbishop.
Note 2 The printer's mark shows that this edition, without date and without an explicit printer's address (a simple 'Ex Officina Plantiniana'), has in fact not been printed in the Plantin Press in Antwerp, but in the Officina Plantiniana Francisci Raphelengii in Leiden (and is as such noted in RDB and De Backer-Sommervogel). It may be assumed that Raphelengius, living in Calvinist Leiden, found it indicated to show on this work of a prominent Jesuit, laudatory of a Spanish archbishop, an address that could point to the Antwerp press of his father-in-law.
Note 3 It may also be supposed that the edition has in fact been printed at a later date than 1586; perhaps 1587.
Note 4 It is not fully clear why this funeral oration by Schottus was published in Leiden, and not, as would have been more normal, in Antwerp. RDB affirms that the text has been edited by the Antwerp humanist Janus Gruterus. This cannot be proved, but an elegy on Augustinus by J. Gruterus is in any case included in the publication, and Janus Gruterus was in 1586-87 living in Leiden.
Note 5 Not listed in M 296 and M 321.
