In the beginning ...

  1. The account of Peter Lombard's "sentences" is not informative, and the description of St. Anselm as an "employee of the Archbishop of Canterbury" suggests that whoever did the summaries was distracted.

    This is great stuff for the collector, and if their prices or my income were shifted about 3 digits I'd love to buy a couple of pieces. But for the reader who is interested not in the editions of (for example) Saints Anselm and Bonaventure but in what they had to say, older editions--even ones much newer than these--are not so good, lacking as they do the centuries of scholarship between.
