(Annot. in an old hand and faint stain on r° first leaf, a few marg. annot., corners (espec. lower) stained, lower outer corner wormholed in last part, without dec. initials/rubrication, last blank lacks).Albertus Magnus (1193-1280) was the most learned scholar of his age, the “Doctor Universalis” of the Middle Ages and the only one to whom the epithet "The Great" was applied. He was of noble birth (being Count of Bollstädt) but became a Dominican and taught in Germany and Paris, later becoming Provincial of his order in Germany and Bishop of Regensburg. The breadth of his intellect was immense, spanning almost all spheres of learning, and he wrote on theology, philosophy and science (PMM). - Hain 464; Goff A-275; GW 682.
