Here's an opportunity to own a nice looking, freshly bound, 16th century work at an affordable price. Unfortunately, before I sent it to my binder, I didn't check the pagination; the pages 145-485 are not present. Still, there's some historical value here, and a nice binding. Will display very well.
About the Works -
German Franciscan Johann Wild's commentary on the writings of John.
About the Provenance -
I can't make out the manuscript inscription, but the stamp indicates it was in a Carmelite convent at some time("Couvent des Carmes.") There is some cool annotations in the margins, in an "old hand".
