1 JOHN OF SEGOVIA TWO [2] ORIGINAL LATE 16TH CENTURY, EARLY 17TH CENTURY MANUSCRIPT VOLUMES OF THE NOTED CATHOLIC THEOLOGIAN: TRACTATUS DE DEO and TRACTATUS DE SACRAMENTIS - SUPERB IN VELLUM
SEGOVIA SALAMANCA SPAIN ESPANA 1599 Very Good Latin 
On offer is a superb late 16th early 17th Century manuscript book in two volumes being the transcribed works of John of Segovia the influential Catholic Theologian who was a professor at the Spanish University of Salamanca, represented Castille at the Council of Basel, and represented the council in the 1439 Diet of Mainz. He played a large role in the removal of Pope Eugene IV and the placement of Antipope Felix V. Volume One: "Tractatus de Deo" a 333 page work in a fine hand though not necessarily the work of a scrivener, the endpapers featuring heraldic and maybe royal watermarks [each is topped with a crown very similar to a Spanish heraldic crown of higher nobility. There seems to be the use of quartering and a pallet like central division. Pictured within the escutcheon are castles, lions, fleur de lis like symbols, likely eagles, a cross, three horizontal circles, with the use of borders and orles, without the use of supporters or mottoes] with other watermarks specifically a star over anchor on interior pages. Volume Two: "Tractatus de Sacramentis" 303 pages, both 4to, 26.5cm x 20cm. Tucked in the volume is one sheet of paper of identical type which we conclude is a leaf missed in binding or perhaps and erratum paage. Bound in period sheep vellum. There is some general, mostly light soiling to the covers, one worm hole to the vellum, the odd interior fault but overall these volumes are VG. NOTA BENE: John of Segovia - His most important literary work is an extensive history of the Council of Basle, "Historia generalis concilii Basiliensis. Libri XVIII", edited by Birk and Beer in "Monumenta conciliorum generalium saeculi decimi quinti: Scriptor.", II-IV (Vienna, 1873-96). His other works are a treatise in favour of the Immaculate Conception of our Lady, printed at Brussels in 1664; a refutation of the Koran, entitled "De mittendo gladio in Saracenos"; a defense of the "Filioque" against the Greeks entitled "De processu Spiritus Sancti" (Basle, 1476); a Biblical concordance, "Concordantiae biblicae vocum indeclinabilium" (Basle, 1476); and a few works defending the superiority of a general council over the Pope.
