About this Item

Attributed to St. Augustine but now relegated to the "spurious, doubtful" category of his works, these sermons enjoyed a wide audience within the Church for centuries. This is an early Italian edition of the famous text first published in Latin in 1477, here printed in roman type, double-column format, with many woodcut initials in various styles (historiated, floriated, cribl?, black on white and reverse) and sizes. The title-page features a woodcut device of three fleurs-des-lis; and the printer's device of a circle with a double cross and the initials D.Z.V.F. appears below the colophon, which is dated 1537. A Doctor of the Church, St. Augustine (354?430) "dominates the Christian tradition of the West, of which he may be considered the founder" (NCE). Binding: 19th-century paneled calf rather elaborately bordered with multiple rules and rolls in blind, with a flower tool at the inner corners of the border on each board; gilt turn-ins and all edges gilt. Provenance: Early ink ownership signature of M. Bains(?) and pen marks on title-page. WorldCat finds no copies in the U.S. of this edition, which is => not in NUC Pre-1956. COPAC locates only the British Library copy. 8vo (15.3 cm, 6"). [160] ff. Index Aurel. 110.240; Edit16 CNCE 25866; NCE, I, pp. 1041?58. This ed. not in Adams. Bound as above, recently rebacked with title and date gilt on spine, new endpapers. Light age-toning throughout, turning moderate on last few leaves. Bookseller Inventory # 33128
