BMC and Goff assign the printing to Conrad Fyner, Esslingen. The printer was first distinguished by Scholderer in Gutenberg-Jahrbuch (1950), p.168, where he assigns it to the Printer of the 1472 Aquinas 'Summa'; reprinted in Fifty Essays, pp.224-28. Ohly (Gutenberg Jahrbuch, 1962) argues for Heinrich Eggestein as printer; CIBN P-162 and Bod-inc P-169 also assign doubtfully to Eggestein.
