Description

This is an incunabula leaf from a later edition of the "Senteniarum Libri Quatuor" or "The Four Books of sentences" written by Peter Lombard a scholastic theologian of the twelfth century, was commonly known as "the Lombard" after his birthplace, which actually was probably Novara. This is his most famous work and was probably composed between 1147 and 1150, although it may be placed as late as 1155. Nothing is certainly known of his later life except that he became bishop of Paris in 1159. Lombard's work was regarded as the standard text in medieval and Renaissance schools of theology for hundreds of years. This edition also contains commentary by the 13th century Italian medieval scholastic theologian and philosopher Saint Bonaventure, The famous Anton Koberger of Nuremberg printed it on March 2, 1491 in the German city of Nuremburg. The small folio leaf measures 280 x 210 mm. in totality and contains up to 62-lines of gothic type (9, 18,19) printed in variable column format in Latin. Verso: contains the same type & layout. (Goff P486, Hain 3540, Proctor 2068, BMC II 433, ISTC ip00486000, Oates 1017) This leaf contains minor staining & wear in the upper left corner.
