Sammelband of 7 publications, issued between 1563 and 1564, small quarto: A-B4; [pi]4; A4 [chi]2; A-B4; A-C4; A-D4; A-B4 (= 62 leaves), pp. [16]; [8]; [12]; [16]; [24]; [32]; [16]. Collective title page in first part; woodcut lettrines throughout. First 6 parts with uniform woodcut title vignette depicting papal tiara and insignia; part 7 with device of Hercules and the Hydra. Rustica card wrappers (spine lightly worn). Expert old repair to blank fore-margin title part 6. A few incidental smudges and stains, else about fine.

Collection of seven contemporary Padova imprints digesting the decrees of the Council of Trent in the nine sessions between 18 Jan., 1562 and 4 Dec. 1563. An early hand has indicated the session numbers, "prima" through "nona," at the top margin. The digests of the first four sessions appear in the first booklet; each of the next five is devoted to a single session. The final booklet provides an alphabetical listing of the participants. Thus, the present series appears to be complete, providing what is promised on the first (collective) title. Similar digests appeared in the same years at other locations, including Brescia and Paris. The EDIT16 database locates a total of twelve related publications which appeared at Padova between 1563 and 1564.
