Analysis of Content

a1r Guido de Monte Rochen: [Letter addressed to] Raimundus Gaston, Bishop of Valencia. ‘[R]euerendo in Christo patri ac domino domino Raymundo diuina prouidentia sancte sedis Valentie episcopo . . .’ See G‑276.

a1v Guido de Monte Rochen: ‘Prologus.’ Incipit: ‘[Q]uoniam secundum quod dicit propheta Malachias . . .’

a2r ‘Diuisio huius libri.’

a2r Guido de Monte Rochen: Manipulus curatorum. ‘De institutione sacramentorum. Capitulum .i. primi tractatus prime partis.’ Incipit: ‘[S]ciendum est ergo quod omnia sacramenta . . .'; explicit: ‘ . . . et pro me peccatore preces ad dominum fundat.’


Imprint: [Milan: Johannes Antonius de Honate, c.1488-9]. 4°.

Remarks: GW ascribes to [Ingolstadt: Printer of Lescherius, c.1488] probably on the basis of a comparison with Honate's type as in GfT 1675 which reproduces Honate's type 72 G with a capital G which has a double stroke at the back and is larger than the rest of the fount. The G which is found in the present book is also used by Honate, for instance, in Thomas Aquinas, Opuscula. Milan: Beninus and Johannes Antonius de Honate, 1488, where both types of G occur. Honate's type further differs from that of the Printer of Lescherius in that the back of the former's capital ‘C' is more sloping and the top horizontal, and the vertical strokes of its capital L are designed with one curving line, not two separate lines.
