[Leipzig] : [Conrad Kachelofen], before 1492. Quarto 8 1/4 X 5 1/4 inches Bound in modern boards covered with a vellum incunable leaf, Goff B563. Initals supplied in read and internal capitals stroked. This copy is lacking the final leaf comprising the poem” Aspice presentis”. ¶ “One of the forgotten works of the Middle Ages is the Stella clericorum, Though short, often derivative in content, and generally rather unassuming, the Stella clericorum was nonetheless one of the most popular traetises of the later Middle Ages. Stella clericorum communicates, in simplistic form and for the use of lower clergy, many of the grand ecclesiological and ritual accom- plishments of the twelfth century. Its principal themes are the dignity of the priesthood and the importance of the Eucharist.”. (CAROL NEEL, Colorado College 1997). Item #735
