Per Gio. Rossi, Bologna, 1585 1585 4to., 398ff, title enclosed by narrow decorative frame border with fine woodcut arms of Sixtus V (to whom the work is dedicated), large woodcut of King David within ornate decorative border on fourth leaf verso, several woodcut initials and head - and tail - pieces, some extremely light (virtually negligible) spotting on fore - margins (rather heavier on a few leaves), some light marginal damp - staining on two leaves of general index; modern full vellum, backstrip lettered by hand in brown, new endpapers, original free endpapers preserved, lettered in MS on bottom edge in an early calligraphic hand, a remarkably bright, crisp copy with broad margins. This copy was formerly in the notable library of Viscount Bangor. With 15pp general index and index of verses. The final printed leaf gives errata (recto) and registration (verso). Collation: +4 A - ZAA - ZZAAa - Ca8DDd2. An extraordinarily long commentary on ten verses of the first penitential psalm (Psalm 6) by an apparently obscure Bolognese monk. Very rare. Not in BMC, Adams or NUC.
