Rare Summa Theologica by St Thomas Aquinas. 
Volume containing Part one and Two of the Summa. The third part (Tertia pars) is not in this book.
Paris, 1617. 

Here is what is written on the first page:

& quicquid in veterum Patrum monumentis eft dignumm obferuatu;
quicquid etiam vel olim vocatum eft, vel hodie vocatur ab
haereticis in controuerfiam; id omne vt eruditè, folidè
& dilucidè, ita pièatque fideliter explicatur;
In tres Partes ab Authore diftributa, in hac vero nouißima Editione in duos Tomos diuifa.

Lutetia Parisior vm,
Sumptibus Dionysii de la Noüe, via Iacobaea,
fub figno Nominis Iesu.


The cover is coming loose (both front and back). The leather is very worn and is completely gone in places letting the card visible (corners and edges).
Pencil writing at the beginning.
The first page with the title has a hole and a large stain.

Some light water damage on the first few pages at the bottom. Similar stains at the top of some pages in the middle of the book. 
Rare imperfections such as small stain, folded corner or pencil marks. The pages are in overall good condition and the paper truly beautiful.

The different parts of the book are :

- Prima Pars Summae Theologicae Angelici Doctoris Sancti Thomae Aquinatis (The First Part of the Theological Summa of the Angelic Doctor Saint Thomas Aquinas)

- Prima Secundae Partis Summae Theologicae Sancti Thomae Aquinatis, Doctoris Angelici, Ordinis praedicatorum (The First Part of the Second Theological Summa of Saint Thomas Aquinas, Angelic Doctor of the Order of Preachers)

- Secunda Secundae Sancti Thomae Aquinatis, opus planè aureum (The Second Second of St. Thomas Aquinas, a plain golden work)

All parts have an index. The first part doesn't have a title page like the other two.

Size: 35.8 x 24 x 9 cm / 14 x 9.44 x 3.54 inches
The book is very heavy (5 kilograms) hence the very high postage price.
