Note
  • Title from leaf [1a]
  • Signatures: [a10, b12]
  • Printed in a single column, 40 to 41 lines per page; capital spaces
  • Gothic type
  • Printed in black with handwritten additions and illuminated letters in red
  • Mention of Fust's name in the introduction: "Discreto viro Iohanni Fust incole magutinensi impressorie onus et laborem."
  • In his Canon pro reco[m]mendatione huius famosi operis, the anonymous editor states that after diligently collating all the copies he could find at Heidelberg, Speier, Worms, and at last also at Strassburg (tandem etiam in argentina) he desired to make the improved text available for the use of students: "Qua p[ro]pter. cu[m] nullo alio modo siue medio, id expedicius fieri posse iudicare[m], discreto viro Iohanni fust incole magu[n]tinensi impressorie artis m[a]g[ist]ro modis omnib[us] p[er]suasi. quatenus ip[s]e assume dignatet[] onus et laborem. multiplicandi hu[n]c libellum per viam impressionis, &c."
  • The same words, however, with the use of the name Mentelin instead of Fust, occur in Mentelin's two undated editions, and it is probable from the phrase 'tandem etiam in argentina' that it was at Strassburg that the book was first set up. The fact that the table on 21b, 22a of Fust's ed. is not found in either of Mentelin's may be taken as evidence either for or against its priority
  • The stress laid on it in Schoeffer's catalog of the books he had for sale (c. 1469) 'Item Augustini de doctrina [Christ]iana, cum tabula notabili p[re]dicantib[us]' seems to show that it was an addition on which he prided himself, and there is no reason why if Mentelin were the imitator he should not have copied this also
  • In Schoeffer's catalog this is the fifth of the twenty-one books advertised. The position supports the view that it may have been printed earlier in the sixties, but the press-mark given it by Mr. Proctor suggests that he believed Fust to have been the original printer--BMC I, p. 21
  • Listed in Goff as the second printing
