Because it would have entailed considerable time and web space to photograph all 200-300 pages of the Loci Communes, I chose to photograph only the initial page of each chapter along with tables of contents and other pages that detailed the subject matter.  It will take some time to display all 100+ photos on this page, therefore I will post a few every now and then as my schedule permits.  

I will endeavor to show the pages in the sequence in which they can be found in the book.

For photos of the accompanying notes in Renaissance Latin, please go the Loci Communes Notes page.

These photos were taken with a Kodak Easyshare C653 on a coffee table.  Occasionally you will note various objects in the background used to hold the pages open, including my fingers in a latex glove (to protect the pages from fingerprints and damaging bodily oils). 

Last Update:  January 21, 2010   I have rearranged the photos to better reflect the organization of the text, placing the part/book/chapter headings in a vertical column to the left and their subordinate pages in rows going to the right.  Please note that I have yet to place all the photos I have into this organization.
