‎An. I. The rare Basel-edition of Saxo. It is the second Saxo-edition, but it is rarer than the first. - Adams S,631. - Lauritz Nielsen, 241.An. II. Scarce first edition of the so-called ""Chronicle of the Saxons"". The chronicle was written during the lifetime of the emperor Otto the Great, probably around 968. starting with the origin of the Saxons, the history comes down to the death of Otto in 997. The earlier part of the work is taken from tradition, but the writing deals with contemporary events as he was familiar with court life and the events of the day. The work is dedicated to Matilda, abbess of Quedlinburg, daughter of the emperor Otto. - Adams W,215.The owner of these two works, and bound for him, the famous JOHANNES INDAGINE, or von Hagen (ca. 1467-1537) was a priest at Steinheim near Franckfurt, and a famous occultist, astronomer and chiromantic. In his popular works (""De Chiromantia"" and ""Introductiones apotelesmaticae"") he combined astrology with physiognomy and chiromancy. His works proved quite popular with the reading public. He was friend to his fellow priest Otto Brunfels, author of the well-known herbal, Vivae Icones.‎
