Title

Canones, et Decreta Sacrosancti Oecumenici, et Generalis Concilii Tridentini …

Publisher

Rome: Paulus Manutius,

Date

1564.

Description

This octavo edition of the proceedings of the Council of Trent, published in the same year as the preceding folio edition, is printed on blue paper, probably as a presentation copy to one of the participants. The book is replete with marginal notes, occasionally signed “C. A.” A pencilled note on the flyleaf attributes these annotations to Francesco Cardinal Alciati (1522–1580), and it is likely that he was the recipient of this special copy printed on blue paper.
