Title: Decretum Argumentum Plenissimum Decreti Hujus, 1528
Author: Gratian
Publisher: Lyon, Gilbert de Villiers impensis Simon Vincent
Condition: Very Good

An extremely scarce early 16th century edition of Gratian’s Decretum Gratiani, also known as Concordia discordantium canonum, or Concordantia discordantium canonum, or just the Decretum, a collection of canon law first compiled and written in the 12th century as a legal textbook. It served as the main source of law by canonists until the Decretals of Pope Gregory IX in 1234.

This work is printed throughout in red and black. The title is contained within a beautiful historiated woodcut border, with one near full-page woodcut, and there are numerous woodcut initials.

The table, which would comprise signatures aaa-ddd8, or 33 leaves, is lacking at the end.

USTC records four existing copies of this edition in libraries.

One vellum bound volume in quarto, CCCCCCXLVII leaves

This volume is in very good shape, with minor rubbing and old staining to the binding. There is light, scattered staining. The front cover is slightly splayed.
