THE OFFICIAL EDITION OF ST: THOMAS WORKS, 16 VOLUMES

Thomas Aquinas (Saint). Opera omnia. Rome: Tipografia Poliglotta of the Propaganda Fide, 1880-1948.

16 folio volumes, contemporary half vellum (three spines restored) on different hand-coloured papers, gilt titles within leather labels at spine. Latin text on two columns.

The fundamental official new edition of the collected works by St. Thomas Aquinas wanted by pope Leo XIII in 1880. The pope instituted the so-called Leonine Commission in order to find and publish the most correct philological version of the Saint's writings.

This collection contains the Saint Thomas' commentaries on Aristotle's works (3 volumes), the «Summa Theologica» (9 volumes) and the «Summa contra gentiles» (3 volumes) plus exegetic texts and the «De Academia instituenda», i.e. the relate of the Leonine commission's foundation and its directives.

Condition

Traces of foxing, but unsophisticated copy.
