Annotation in a copy of Il Petrarca, con l'espositione d'Alessandro Vellutello (Venice: Giolito de Ferrari, 1530):
To buy this book I sold a sleeved pullover, Edmund Parsons, 1913.
Erasmus, letter 160 (to Nicholas Bensrott; July 18, 1501; tr. Francis Morgan Nichols):
If there is any fresh Greek to be bought, I would rather pawn my coat than not get it.

Si quid est nouae Graecanitatis, vestem citius oppignerauerimus quam non potiamur.
