A handsome copy of a rare imprint. $10,000. * First edition. Mazzolini, a theologian and wide-ranging scholar, was an inquisitor and censor of books for Rome. An early opponent of Martin Luther, he was involved in the juridical process against him. (Mazzolini was also involved in cases against Johann Reuchlin, Pietro Pomponazzi and Erasmus). A great deal of his scholarship was devoted to the works of St. Thomas Aquinas. Also known as the Egregium vel Potius Divinum Opus in Iohannem Capreolum, Mazzolini's Compendium is a commentary on the works of another Aquinas scholar, Jean Capreolus [c.1380-c.1444]. Silberschlag, the former owner of this copy, was a professor of theology at the University of Erfurt. This is a scarce imprint. We located only two auction records for it, one in 1991, the other in 2002. OCLC locates 5 copies in North America (Cornell, Library of Congress, Morgan Library, St. Bonaventure University, Yale).
