Commentariorvm Fratris Dominici Soto
Shoults Itb 1584 S
[Venice: Hieronymo Zenaro] & Fratres
The University catalogue entry states that this 1100 plus page commentary by the Dominican priest Domingo de Soto (1494-1560) is bound in vellum. In fact, the outer garment of this work printed in Venice in 1584 is pigskin, wrapped over board just visible at the frayed edges. The brass clasps are intact, and were probably made by a professional metalworker rather than the binder. The centrepiece of foliage is surrounded by another panel of flowers and small medallion portraits. Outside this frame are barely visible blind-stamped images of some of Christ’s followers: Mark (‘Marcus’ on right) and John (‘Johann’ at bottom). The leaf edges of this work have been adorned with a restrained blue-green colouring.
