About This Item
Goff A Alexander ; second work not in Goff. Chancery folio x mm.
Hartlieb's popular adaptation was the first in German. Hartlieb based his adaptation and translation into German of the Alexander the Great legend on the 10th-century recension of archpriest Leo of Naples 'no version of the Alexander-romance has had a wider influence nor produced more vernacular progeny than this wretched little book' -- Ross, p.
The Alexander story is filled with marvellous tales of the hero's journey to the earthly Paradise and the interpretation of the Wonderstone, his submarine exploration, a visit to Jerusalem, etc. The full-page woodcut opening the book has been interpreted variously as portraying Eusebius, Alexander, or Hartlieb.
The story came to Europe in the 11th-century and quickly became one of the most popular secular texts of the Middle Ages. One of the first published framed-story narratives, its mixture of lore, proverbs, fables, folktales and exempla inspired much great literature which followed, including Boccaccio, Chaucer and Gower.
The first edition in German dates from c. Sale Valuable Books and Manuscripts.
