CCLV [= CCLVJ], [28] ll.A finely printed edition of this great compendium of canon law. The author, citizen, canon and bishop of St Davies died in 1446. His reputation rests on his present Provinciale, a digest in five books "of the most important ecclesiastical legislation enacted within the province of Canterbury between the Council of Oxford in 1222 and Chichele's archiepiscopate. To these statutes, or constitutions as they were more properly called, Lyndwood added two royal responses to clerical demands made in the constitutions: the writ Circumspecte agatis (1286) and part of the Articuli cleri (1316)" (DNB). The work was edited and completed with an elaborate index by the eminent Paris printer and grammarian Jodocus Badius (or Josse Bade).Some marginal annotations in ink. First leaves a bit soiled or stained; last leaf reinforced; endpapers renewed. On the original flyleaf some contemporary annotations, including quotations from the bible and a recipe, both in English. Binding restored. A very good copy of an attractively printed work.l Adams L2117; BMC STC Dutch, p. 68; ESTC S109035; Netherlandish books 11171; Nijhoff & Kronenberg 1442 (erroneously calling for 276 leaves in total); Renouard, Badius III, pp. 52-53 (incorrect collation); USTC 403751.
