Saint Albertus Magnus [Albert the Great] (1193?-1280) was a German Dominican; he wrote extensively and had a great influence on Thomas Aquinas. He is known as Doctor Universalis because of his wide knowledge of the sciences, nature and theology; some have called him the greatest German philosopher and theologian of the Middle Ages.
Carolus Scribanius (1561-1629) was the son of an Italian physician and a Flemish mother who was from Ghent; he became rector of the Jesuit college and Provincial for the region of the south-Netherlands. He devoted much time and energy in the cause of the Counter-Reformation.
Overall in very good condition with two small pencil notations on the front blank leaves, light pencil notation on Scribanius title-page; very mild darkening/staining of vellum covers; text is in excellent condition, bright, clean, & unmarked.
