71 Volumes ANTONIANUM: PERIODICUM PHILOSOPHICO-THEOLOGICUM TRIMESTRE / Journal of PHILOSOPHICAL THEOLOGY - A Complete 71 Year Run 1926-1996
ANTONIANUM: PERIODICUM PHILOSOPHICO-THEOLOGICUM TRIMESTRE 1926-1996. A COMPLETE RUN of the 71 ANNUAL VOLUMES of this IMPORTANT JOURNAL of RELIGIOUS PHILOSOPHY, published in ROME. Each volume contains numerous articles by scholars on religion, religious philosophy, church history, etc., with an emphasis on the FRANCISCAN ORDER.. Each article is written in the language that the author chose, often in Latin, but also in Italian, French, English, etc. Published by Directio et Administratio Antonianum, ROMA (ROME, ITALY), 1926-1996. SEVENTY-ONE VOLUMES (Volumes 1-71). 6.5x9.5 inches (17x24 cm). Pages numbered by volume (i.e. numbered consecutively when there are several parts to a single volume). Approximately 400-600 pages per volume, less to earlier volumes, more to later volumes. Volumes 1-51 are bound in HARDCOVERS, with the complete annual issues bound within. Some of the original wrappers / paper covers are bound in, most are not, otherwise every annual volume is complete. Most of the hardcover volumes have black leather covered spines and corners with matching black pebbled cloth, 4 raised spine bands, and gilt spine titles; some of the hardcover volumes have cloth covered spines and marbled paper covered boards. Volumes 52-71 are in wrappers, most published in three parts per Volume. The previous owner has put thin plastic bands around the three issues of each of the softcover annual volumes, presumably to keep them safe and in proper order while stored, perhaps deep in a Vatican vault. Though single volumes (or one part of a three part annual volume) can sometimes be found for sale, this UNBROKEN SET OF 71 VOLUMES has become almost impossible to find. While most volumes do not show any previous ownership names, some show a variety of previous owners, including Adolf Ledwolorz O.F.M., b. 1892 d. 1973, a Polish Franciscan Catholic Scholar, author of a few works on the history of Franciscans and on Polish Catholics; Franziskaner Konvent in Hannover (a Franciscan Monastery in Hannover, Germany), and others. Accordingly, there are some ink stamps and handwritten names, mainly to the prelim pages, of the volumes that show a previous owner. Nothing major. Apparently this complete set had a varied provenance. GOOD CONDITION: Various degrees of rubbing and scrapes to the covers, mostly minor but some more significant including fraying at the spine ends; internally, there is light toning to the pages, some signs of handling, some creases and wear here and there, overall still tight, bright, clean and clear. There are no marks or marginalia that I can find, except the previous owner's stamps and written names as noted above, however there are MANY volumes and MANY pages that I have not closely examined and there well could be some notes, underlining, annotations, etc. that I did not come across in volumes I did not examine (e.g. I did not cut open the straps that hold the softcover volumes together) or missed in my examination. A solid, very presentable, complete set of 71 Volumes with All Parts. Would look great on and off the shelf. No good Catholic library should be without it, God knows. Will be shipped in FIVE or more HEAVY BOXES.
