Compendium recenter editum de multiplici Parisiensis universitatis magnificentia dignitate et excellentia ejus fundatione mirificoque suorum suppositorum ac officiariorum et collegiorum nomine. Preterea supplementum de duabus artibus et heptadogma.
Toussaint Denis, Paris 1517 - Probably the first book on the history and curriculum of any university (cf. E. P. Goldschmidt). The Compendium was written by Robert Goulet, a professor at the University of Paris, and is an encomium of that university, narrating its foundation and history, its administrative organization, and its curriculum. It also offers advice to others who would like to imitate in their own colleges that "mother of all universities." And indeed, the University of Paris was a mother to many schools and colleges throughout Europe, inspiring their organization and curriculum in countless ways. The work is prefaced by a prayer for students written by St. Thomas Aquinas and a letter by Aldus Manutius on the education of youth. Small 4to (20.5 x 15cm), [iv] + 24ll. A bit of scattered marginalia, last leaf with slight edge wear and small marginal damp-stain, verso of last leaf with antique ownership inscription. Bound in modern limp vellum with gilt title on spine. [Attributes: First Edition]
