Opera Bedae venerabilis presbyteri, Anglosaxonis : viri in divinis atque humanis literis exercitatissimi : omnia in octo Tomos distincta, prout statim post Praefationem suo Elencho enumerantur.

Later vellum bindings, each volume with two labels. New labels and vellum spine to Vol. I. Stamp of an English monastic library on the title pages and also an earlier small stamp from a continental library. Engraved architectural title page to Vol. I., some illustrations, music and historiated initials in the text. Old damp stains at the front of Vol. I. A good sound set of the first collected edition of Bede's works. In the autobiographical account appended to his Historia Ecclesiastica Gentis Anglorum Bede lists over thirty of his written works. This edition omits some of Bede's writings and includes a Commentary on St. Paul which is not by Bede.
