Description

Although the Summa Theologiae is probably the most well known of St. Thomas Aquinas’s writing, it would be remiss not to feature our examples of his other works, which have each had their own influence on Western thought and Christianity. This first folio is In libros De anima expositio, or in English, Commentary on Aristotle’s De anima (On the Soul). This example is from 1501, published in Venice in Latin. A thin book compared to our other examples, coming in at only 75 leaves with several woodcuts throughout. What is also remarkable about this specific copy is the impressive amount of notes in the margins, which makes many of the pages extremely visually striking. Whoever studied with this copy certainly had a lot to write about! 21.5 cm long, 31.75 cm tall, and 2 cm wide with a contemporary green cover.
