Notes: The first edition of these important commentaries on the Decretals of Gregory IX. Piètro d'Ancarano (1333 – 1416) worked in the tradition of Giovanni d'Andrea. Hugely respected for his knowledge of both Canon and Civil law, he gained the Latin nickname 'anchora juris'. Not quite an incunable by the skin of its teeth, this is a rare, as well as a stately, book. The only copy in COPAC is at New College, Oxford, while Edit16 records just 2 in Italy. There is no copy in the US in WorldCat.
