A very impressive large folio edition of Ludovici Cenci's Additiones ad Tractatum de Censibus - a fine work of Roman Canon Law and census. Cencii describes and summarizes the lives and service of various Catholic leaders, including cardinals and bishops. The book also covers important rulings and legal decisions made by the Catholic Church; very much so the power of the day.
An impressive and somewhat haunting Capture of Tyme - quite the distinctive book indeed.
