Parma: Damianus de Moyllis and Johannes Antonius de Montalli
Printing was introduced into Parma by Andreas Portilia, who completed an edition of Plutarch on educational matters on 23 September 1472. Although Damianus de Moyllis, also known as De Bochalariis, may have been printing as early as 1470 (see BMC VII: xlviii), the first authenticated work is the Chorale which he and his brother Bernardus completed on 10 April 1477. No mention is made of his 'partner', Johannes Antonius de Montalli.


Modern faded red buckram. Large blemish on front cover. Spine title reads: Dorbelli/ Logice/ 1482.
First page of text proper (Excellentissimi...f.1a), colophon.


A commentary on the Summulae logicales (Little summaries of logic) of Petrus Hispanus (Pope John XXI), but of that text only the first few words beginning each section are printed.
Pope John XXI (d. 1277) was a trained physician before he became pope in 1276.
De Orbellis (born c. 1400) was a French Franciscan monk and scholar.
