The third of four editions by Giorgio Arrivabene of this popular compendium of canon law. According to CIBN, each of the 45 quires presents at least three different settings and their random assembly makes no copy exactly the same as another. The present copy follows the collation in BMC. It lacks the last quire, containing the alphabetical table of civil and canon law headings, which has been replaced by the final 10-leaf quire containing the same index from the previous Arrivabene edition, 9 October 1489 (Goff A-718, GW 1928).
