Feast of St. Thomas Aquinas

Happy Feast of St. Thomas Aquinas to all scholars!

We offer for your perusal this fine set of St. Thomas Aquinas' Opera Omnia.

THOMAS AQUINATIS, SANCTUS. Divi Thomae Aquinatis Opera Omnia. Editio altera Veneta ad plurima exempla comparata, & emendata. Accedunt vita, seu elogium eius a Iacobo Echardo diligentissime concinnatum, & Bernardi Mariae de Rubeis in singula opera [28 volumes bound as 22, complete]. Venetiis: Ioseph Bettinelli, 1745-1760. 4vo. Bound in full original vellum. Four raised bands. Most volumes worn on spines. Significant chipping to head and foot of a few spines. One volume lacking vellum on spine. Some volumes show warping boards and cracking front and rear hinges. Interior hinges still firm. Scattered foxing. Beautiful frontispieces. Clean text. Text set in dual columns. Speckled page edges. A scarce edition, yet the typical eighteenth century edition of Thomas Aquinas's Opera omnia. Still regarded to be among the principle editions. Song of Songs commentary done by Pseudo Haimo of Halberstadt.

Thanks again to Matthew Alderman for the use of his image of St. Thomas Aquinas.

St. Thomas Aquinas, Doctor of the Church, pray for us.
