Collection of the New York Bar Association. ISTC # ig00477500; Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke Index (11495) By the Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke Index, the earliest effort by Baptista de Tortis on the Decretals was a joint printing with Franciscus de Madiis in 1484. Tortis made a sole issue again in 1486, 1489, 1491, 1494, 1496, and 1498 (the last, this copy, is with the number 11495 in the Gesamtkatalog). In 1498, Andreas Torresansus and Baptista de Tortis both produced editions of the Decretals, March fourth and October tenth respectively. Tortis still revised further, and another copy appeared in September 1499 and a final in 1500. Other glosses of the Decretals gain printing interest in Venice after 1500, but Tortis, by far, made the largest contribution, especially of the Venetians, during the late fifteenth century. This is a beautifully produced Venetian incunable that was refined over a period of intense printing activity and interest in the text. The glossators or decretalists, Bernardus Parmensis and Hieronymus Clarius, were well-known commentators whose methods were inextricably linked to this most famous papal work on ecclesiastical law.
