A fine and well preserved, almost complete collection of Albertus Magnus's major scholastic writings on natural philosophy and metaphysics, including the FIRST EDITIONS of the Metaphysica and De generatione et corruptione. The first two items in the volume have title-pages that assert the ten-year Venetian privilege granted to the Gregorii on 28 June 1494. As part of the same program, and similarly protected, they also printed editions of the Logica (Goff A-270, 27 September 1494) and De animalibus (A-225, 21 May 1495). Another copy of these same seven editions bound together is in Herbert Hoover's library at Claremont College. ---- References: (1) Physica: Goff A-300, Hain-Copinger 519, GW 717; BMC V 346 (IB.21052), Polain 71; BSB-Ink.
