De divina praedestinatione.

Felicianus (pseud., attributed to Petrus de Ilperinis Romanus)

De divina praedestinatione.

Description: EDITIO PRINCEPS, 11 leaves, of 12, lacking the final blank, rubricated throughout, 3- and 4-line initials and an 8-line one at the beginning crudely filled in, tear in the fore-margin of leaf 10, going inwards and upwards but just avoiding the text, skilfully repaired (probably caused by the slightly corroded tab on the following leaf), folio (280 x 205 mm), vellum over boards of the first half of the 20th century, probably German, ink lettering on spine

Publication Details: [Augsburg: Monastery of SS. Ulrich and Afra (with Anton Sorg's type), 1473-74]

Notes: A rare production from the short-lived press of the Monastery of SS. Ulrich and Afra, under the direction of Melchior von Stamham, a patron of learning. The abbot went ahead with the printing press 'despite all entreaties of his friends' (BMC), starting in 1473: but he died at the end of January 1494, and printing ceased shortly thereafter. Little is known of the author, who died in 1381. He was a Dominican, and his brother a cardinal.
