NICOLAUS DE DINKELSBÜHL (attributed to). Concordantia in passionem dominicam. Ulm: Johann Zainer, 'circa' 15 June 1480.
Chancery 2° (299 x 210mm). Collation [1-28 3-410]. 36 leaves only (of 385, lacking Albertus de Padua, Expositio evangeliorum dominicalium et festivalium). 41 lines. Type: 7:136G, 4:96aG. 5-line initial opening text in red, red capital strokes in heading. (Small wormholes, marginal repair in final leaf, ink stain on fos.4v-5r, marginal waterstain in one leaf, some spotting.) Early 20th-century vellum, flat spine lettered in black ink, two vellum fore-edge tabs. Provenance: Freiburg, University Library (stamp and cancellation); anonymous owner ['A Continental Collector', sale Sotheby's, 22 March 1932, lot 313, describing the ink stain, £3.15 to Hermann].
Although occasionally found separately (Hain 11762; two copies in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek), the Concordantia properly makes up the final 4 quires of Zainer's edition of Albertus de Padua's Expositio evangeliorum dominicalium et festivalium. H *574; BMC II, 526 (IB. 9188); BSB A-133; GW 785; Goff A-340.
