Bibliotheca Wiffeniana, Vol. 1 free pdf Excerpt from Bibliotheca Wiffeniana, Vol. 1: Spanish Reformers of Two Centuries From 1520, Their Lives and Writings, According to the Late Benjamin B. Wiffen's Plan Nd With the Use of His Materials For many years the late Benjamin Barron Wiffen entertained the hope that his friend Don Luis de Usoz i Rio would compile a manual of the lives and works of the Spanish Reformers from the time of Erasmus, a labour which he knew that his scholarly friend was better able to carry out than himself- and being by their great mutual attachment encouraged to cherish this hope, he for years collected materials, biographical and literary, which he contemplated placing at his friend's disposal. With Don Luis' death, which occurred in 1865, Wiffen's hope was blighted, and the further prospect of the publication of such a work as he desired, depended thenceforth upon himself, he being at that time upwards of seventy years of age. A few years previously Wiffen had made the acquaintance of Mr. and Mrs Betts of Pembury whose companionship and sympathy with the work did much to keep the subject alive in his thoughts, and from time to time they pressed it upon him. They frequently lived and worked under the same roof with him, and however much increasing infirmity may at times have made him shrink from undertaking a labour which could appear formidable to a scholar in his prime, it nevertheless resulted in the preparation by him, during the two years which intervened between Don Luis' and his own decease, of considerable material for the present work. In July 1868 Mrs Betts asked me by letter, whether I would assist in preparing for the press our friend's title-pages of the works of the Spanish Reformers, together with their memoirs. Some weeks later Mr and Mrs Betts were at Halle, and in November my wife and I following their kind invitation staid with them at Pembury. In the quiet study of their hospitable home, I found Wiffen's manuscripts and a great many of his books ready for my perusal.
