Title: Opuscula omnia. Quibus adiunximus opusculum de eruditione princips, antehac nunquam imprint, 1587
Author: Thomas Aquinas
Publisher: Heir Hieronymus Scotus, Venice
A late 16th century edition of Thomas Aquinas’s Opuscula Omnia, being a collection of his relatively shorter theological tracts, which were initially printed separately from his large-scale works.
This is a lovely two-column edition, with woodcut initials. There are several woodcut headers and designs, along with the main printer’s device.
This edition is missing the second printer device, which would have been found on the final leaf.
One vellum bound volume in folio, 779 pages, the final page being provided in manuscript writing.
On note of condition, this volume is in good shape, with some rubbing and staining noted on the vellum noted, with a portion detaching from the boards as well.
The last leaf appears to have been lost quite some time ago, with a handwritten manuscript leaf added on to replace the lost text.
