[Paris]: Impesis Joanis Parui & Joanis Scabelerij, [1510]. Third edition. Quarto. Approximately 11 x 8 inches. [338] leaves. Evidently lacking six leaves. With several woodcut illustrations of musical instruments and singers.

Binding worn and soiled, gutters cracked or starting in several places, leaf G1 has a tape repair, some worming at inner margin in in text, title-page repaired and partially restored.

This work influenced Martin Luther, and Ignatius of Loyola. From the collection of John Carrol Collins.
