Summa Sancti Thomae
Hodiernnis Academiarum Moribus Accomodata sive Curcus TheologiaeParis : 1857 Stock Code: 24410
NotesAn attractively bound set of Billuart's highly-regarded Latin commentary on Thomas Aquinas's "Summa Theologica", first published between 1746 and 1751. A famous preacher, Billuart defended publicly in Maastricht the doctrine of the Real Presence, silencing his Calvinist opponents by his incisive logic and extensive learning.
5 volumes, octavo. Contemporary vellum, spines geometrically gilt-tooled in compartments with two gilt morocco title labels to each (one black, one green).
Latin gift inscription in ink c.1900 to front free endpaper of each volume, some labels damaged, boards mellow, some internal foxing. A very good set.
