Scope and content

Thirteen mutilated bi-folia on a theological subject. Thought to be 14th century or early 15th probably northern Italy or Switzerland.
No foliation, pagination, catchwords, or quire signatures are visible. Each bi-folio has been cut vertically so that one half has only one column of text, and each double sheet has been cut horizontally so that either the upper lower portion of the column is missing.
The folios were removed from the binding of D. Aurelii Augustini Hipponensis Episcopi Opera, printed at Basie by J. Frobenius, 10 vols as 7, 1542-1543. The set was formerly owned by Bishop F. R. Nixon who deposited it in the Diocesan Library in Hobart, whence it passed at an unknown date to the Library of Christ College.
