Opuscula Sancti Thome: quibus alias impressis nuper hec addidimus, videlicet, Summam totius logice, Tractatum celeberrimum de vsuris nusquam alias impressum (Venice: Boneto Locatelli for Ottaviano Scoto, 1498) .

The volume is based on the 1490 edition of Thomas Aquinas's Opuscula printed by Hermann Liechtenstein in Venice, but, as the title page indicates, this edition adds two other treatises on logic and usury, the latter printed for the first time (see title above). The book also contains a Life of St. Thomas by Antonius Pizamanus, a noted Venetian scholar.

The colophon (fol. 341v) states that the book was printed in Venice at the request and expense of Ottaviano Scoto of Modena (active 1479-1499; see catalogue n° 72), "under the care and ingenuity" of Boneto Locatelli of Bergamo (active 1487-1524). Scoto's well-known printer's mark (circle and cross) bears his initials (O, S, M). Scoto and Locatelli joined in the publication of another book in this catalogue (see n° 32).
