Description:

Augustine of Hippo, Saint (354-430 AD) De Trinitate. [Freiburg im Breisgau: Kilianus Piscator (Fischer)], 1494. Folio, printed in black letter, two columns throughout, capital strokes and initials supplied in red, first largest initial in red and blue, contents good, some discoloration to last leaf, in later parchment over boards, 11 3/4 x 8 in.

Although not as well-known as some of his other works, De Trinitate is arguably Augustine's masterpiece and of more doctrinal importance than the Confessions or City of God. See Edmund Hill's St Augustine on the Trinity in Life of the Spirit (1946-1964), Vol. 15, No. 180 (June 1961), pp. 540-548. https://www.jstor.org/stable/43705747?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents
