One of the latest and scarcest productions of the famous first press of Rome, from which Schweinheim had already seceded. Soon after the date of this volume, both partners were in the grave. 16980 DIVI THOME AQUINATIS continuum in libr. EVANGELII SECUNDUM MATTHEUM (et secundum MARCUM); super EVANGELIO SANCTI LUCE CONTINUUM Sancti Thome; Beati Aquinatis continuum in EVANGELIUM SANCTI JOHANNIS (Jo. Andreas, Episc.

Romæ, per C. SWEYNHEYM et A. PANNARTZ, 1470 FIRST EDITION OF THIS FAMOUS COMMENTARY. Fine, large, and generally sound copy, but some leaves are a little wormed. The first page in each vol. is richly painted and illuminated, and there are several illuminated initial letters.

Magnificent Spanish Manuscript on Vellum, with 110 Miniatures, all very large but many of them nearly 14 inches by 6 in dimension, and some larger still, painted on grounds of deep and vivid colour, -including a circular Map of the World, ancient calf binding, enclosed in a morocco case, Written in North Spain (Old Castile or Aragon) about A.D. 1150


The finest extant monument of Spanish graphic art in the time of Alfonso VII the Emperor. According to the opinion of Comte Bastard, there is no twelfth century MS. in existence which can presume to rival this grand volume in artistic value. 16982 BLEEK (Friedrich) Einleitung in die Heilige Schrift, 2 vols. 8vo. calf gilt, 158 Berlin, 1860-62

16983 BROWN (Rev. T. R.) Readings and critical notes on the difficult texts of the Scripture, 8vo. bound, 30s Southwick, 1848 Only three copies printed. The extraordinary character of these notes, as well as the fact that the author was also the private printer, ought to recommend the book.

17021 APOSTOLICAL CONSTITUTIONS, or Canons of the Apostles, Coptic and English, by Henry Tattam, 8vo. cloth, £3. O. T. F. 1848

Formerly attributed to Clemens Romanus, and supposed to be of true apostolical origin; but now believed to have been compiled at the beginning of the fourth century.

O. T. F. 1834

Mogunt. per Petrum Schoiffer de Gernszhem, 1470 RARE. Didot's copy, similar to this and also in a modern binding, fetched £172. The book is a fine cxample of the Schöffer press, and has the colophon, printed in red ink, which proves beyond dispute that Mentz was the birthplace of typography.

INCIP. COSTONES CLE. PPE. V. VNACū APPARATU DNI. Jo. AN., roy. folio, printed on Vellum, bound in parchment, fine copy, £84.

Magunt. Petr. Schoiffer, 1471

WITH THE FOUR EXTREMELY RARE ADDITIONAL LEAVES which contain the Rule of St. Francis and the "execrabilis" constitution of John XXII.

As a specimen of vellum-printing, and of the first printingpress, this is a volume of no small interest.

17026 BARBACIE (Andrea) Repetitio Solennis Rubrica de Fide Instrumentorum, Ed. Princ. Bononiæ (Ugo Ruggerius), 1474BARTHOLOMEI CEPOLLE Cautelle, Mediolani, Christoforus Waldarfer, 1475-2 vols. in 1, folio, old red MOROCCO, gilt edges, EXCESSIVELY RARE, £5. 1474-75

Both works are amongst the earliest productions of the celebrated presses from which they emanated. The second book is a curious collection of nice law-points, quibbles and quillets, and hints for sharp practice.

b. Decrees of Councils and Synods; Acts of Provincial Churches.

17027 CONCILIA. CONCILIORUM OMNIUM GENERALIUM ET PROVINCIALIUM COLLECTIO REGIA, 37 vols. roy. folio, old red morocco gilt, with the Arms of Louis XIV in gold on the sides and the royal crown and interlaced LL on the backs, gilt and marbled edges, A LARGE AND MAGNIFICENT COPY, £110.

Paris. e typog. Regia, 1644

"Cette collection se trouve difficilement," says Brunet; a remark which applies with tenfold force to the occurrence of such a superb uniform copy as this. When it is remembered that Mansi's great collection of Councils stops short with the fifteenth century, the value of the older collections becomes apparent. This is usually called the Royal or the Louvre collection. 17028 CONCILIA. NOVA COLLECTIO CONCILIORUM. STEPHANUS BALUZIUS in unum collegit, cum notis illustravit, LARGE PAPER, 1 vol. roy. folio (all published), old French red morocco gilt, gilt edges, FINE COPY, £5. Paris. 1683

This is a necessary supplement to various editions, and must be appended either to Labbé's, or Hardouin's, or the Royal Councils.
