Publication Details: Venice: Francesco de Franceschi, 1569

Notes: First edition of this commentary on the cabbalistic theses of Pico della Mirandola. Arcangelo da Borgonuovo, a Franciscan, died at a ripe old age just before this book was published. He had spent most of his life defending Cabbalist doctrines, and Pico della Mirandola in particular. They shared the same Hebrew teacher in Flavio Mitridate. A very rare book: no copy in the USA in WorldCat.
