Libri quatro di messer Giovanni Gerson... della imitatione d’ Christo.
Venice: Cesaro Arrivabene, 1518.

In this Italian translation of 1518, the original text of the Imitatio Christi was attributed again to Gerson. The woodcut on the title page shows the resurrected Christ reaching out to take the hand of a believer who kneels below the words “Sequere me” (“follow me”).
