Imprint: [Strasbourg: Printer of the 1472 Aquinas ‘Summa'], 1472. Folio.

Scholderer, ‘Notes on the Incunabula of Esslingen', Gb Jb (1950), 167-71, at 168, repr. in Scholderer, Fifty Essays, 224-8; Kurt Ohly, ‘Eggestein, Fyner, Knoblochtzer', Gb Jb (1962), 122-35, argues for [Heinrich Eggestein] as printer.

Sixteenth-century manuscript obituary notes, in German, on a parchment strip pasted inside the front cover. ‘De virtutibus theologicis et aliis' in a sixteenth-century hand in the upper margin of [a1r]; on the same leaf, in the upper right-hand corner: ‘2a 2ae D. Thom. Aquin.' in a seventeenth-century hand in brown ink. Running ‘quaestio' numbers and references to folio numbers in the list of contents in an early hand in brown ink. Early signature partially visible.

On [a1r] an eight-line initial ‘P' is supplied in interlocked red and blue with reserved white acanthus-leaf decoration edged in brown, within a square ground made of red and violet pen-work decoration. With floral and foliate extensions in brown ink touched in red. Other main initials are supplied in blue with red pen-work decoration and sometimes brown ink pen-work as well. Other initials and paragraph marks are supplied in red or blue.

Provenance: Augsburg, Observant Franciscans; inscription on [a1r]: ‘Pro bibliotheca Augustana Fratrum Minorum Regularis Obseruantiae'. Stamped shelfmark ‘29' attached to [a1r]. Possibly a duplicate from the Royal Library, Munich; ‘1987' in pencil on the front pastedown in a hand that seems to be very similar to the one that generally wrote duplicate numbers in Munich books. If so, probably acquired between 1847 and c.1892, probably in 1850; not in Catalogus (1843) with Appendix.

SHELFMARK: Auct. 6Q inf. 2.16.
