Description

Volume 1 from a set of the Summa Theologiae in Latin from 1639. This set has 9 volumes, from v.1-5 and v.7-10. Each volume is 14 cm tall and 8.25 cm long. The width on each volume differs according to the length of the work. There is a bookplate belonging to the Archbishop of Baltimore, Ambrose Maréchal in the front cover. This set was published in Germany. The first volume (displayed here) has an illustrated title page with a signature from Archbishop Maréchal. The size of the work differs from the other copies of the Summa in this exhibit, as it is much more portable compared to the folio sized editions of the Summa. We can infer that this set might have been intended for travel or for the dissemination of the work to the laity.
