    The Catholic Encyclopedia designates this edition “the latest and best” of the Vulgate Glosses containing all of the exegetical apparatus by Nicholas of Lyra, Paulus Burgensis (Paul of Burgos), Matthias Toringus, and many others. Misattributed to the Benedictine monk Walafrid Strabo (since the 20th century attributed to the French theologian Anselm of Laon and his followers), edited by the Welsh Benedictine monk and scholar Leander a. S. Martino [John Jones] (1575-1636), and published by Johannes Meursius. Engraved title page after Jan Collaert II after Peter Paul Rubens, with others after Rubens. Provenance: Bookplate of Peter Foulkes, Canon of Christ Church Oxon 1724. References: STCV 6822607, OCE vol. 6, pg. 588.

    Complete in six volumes with the usual mispaginations and collates as per STCV 6822607 excepting vol.3: 4A8 is blank (and not noted in STCV), vol. 4: lacking the final blank leaf (b4), vol. 5 includes 2T6 (which the STCV copy lacks and is indeed blank), vol. 6: with the index and errata bound in at the start of Chapter 2 and lacking the final blank leaf (3T8), so collates as: A10 a6 e6 i6 B-3T7. Aged repairs to the spines leaving the lettering and decoration largely dulled. Minor rubbing and cracking to the joints though still very sturdy. Short, though generally with ample margin excepting: vol. 1: tail of G5 cropped; vol. 2: G6 a little short, and KK5 very slightly cropped (the final 2 marginal notes only). Very occasional minor marginal crease, tear, or chip. Minor to moderate tanning in places, a few leaves on the heavier side, and some of the engravings with some offsetting. A few very minor scorch marks. A few of the volumes with very minor to minor worming, when present mostly in the tail margin. Volume 3 with a light watermark to tail fore-edge of preliminaries, and a small marginal dampstain to fore-edge near tail from ZZZ to end, with some small associated tears. Volume 5 with some very minor and extremely marginal staining to edges, a minor bump to the crown fore-edge corner of a small number of lower leaves, and some minor stains to the final leaves of the main text. Overall sturdy and very presentable with the Rubens illustrations clean and bright. Very Good Condition.
