16970 AQUINATIS (S. Thomæ) [Quæstiones disputatæ de Veritate] stout

folio, hf. bd. fine copy, £5. Rome, Arnoldus Pannurtz, 1476

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

Sunderland library, £42.

Romæ, per C. SwEYNHEYM et A. PANNARTZ, 1470

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.

CODEX APOCALIPSIS duodenario ecclesiarum numero ita duodenario ordine librorum incisione distinctio.-EXPLANATIO DANIELIS prophete ab auctore b’i jeh’i (S. HIERONYMO)—in 1 vol. stout roy. folio.

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, £1600. 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

texts of the Scripture, 8vo. bound, 30s Southwick, 1848

Only three copics 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.

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
