Notes: Nicolaus Falcutius and Nicolaus Nicoli



Nicolaus Falcutius, or Falcuccius (Niccolo Falcucci) must be the one medieval author who holds the record for having been wrongly catalogued in the largest number of modern European libraries. In the hope that he may be correctly catalogued in the future, I will here list the printed editions of his major writings only, the seven huge volumes Sermones (which a remedial, not theological), and show what has been their fate in the printed catalogues of the English-speaking world: for no one has ever got him quite right. For lack of space I will not enter into the question of his fortuna in continental libraries, but will restrict myself to Britain and America.
