They can try Newman Books in Washington, DC as well: http://www.newmanbookstore.com/

The leonine ed. is available from editions du cerf if you want the hardcopy: http://www.editionsducerf.fr/home.asp

The laudable Blackfriars edition of the Summa with Latin on one side and English on the other (a la Loeb Classical Library) has just been republished. Check out this link for the first in the 60+ volume series.

Back in the 1980s I got a one-volume Summa Theologiae in Latin from the Daughters of St. Paul bookstore in San Francisco. The publisher was Editiones Paulinae.

Also, Casa Editrice Marietti has editions of all if not most of his works.

Newman Bookstore is unfortunately not as reliable as it used to be. For used and sometimes cheaper copies I recommend abebooks.com much more than Amazon.

Also, I do not recommend the 60-volume Blackfriars Summa. The translation is inconsistent and frequently very loose. The older anonymous English translation is much more reliable.

I have the aforementioned one-volume Latin Summa as well. The text is the Leonine; it's frequently reprinted; I would recommend that one. For a more convenient version see if you can find a copy of the five-volume pocked-sized Biblioteca Auctores Cristianos edition. For some reason vol. 3 seems particularly hard to find (I stumbled across mine by accident in a used bookstore).

I haven't tried this site out much on the technical Latin of the Dumb Ox, but I've put together a little tool that'll hyperlink an entire text into various Latin dictionaries so a limited vocabulary won't so hinder one's reading. It's over at http://www.semi-fluent.com>www.semi-fluent.com

Just the other day at the library of Regis College (University of Toronto) I saw an old Latin volume of the Summa on sale for 50 cents.

Here's a question that's been on my mind a lot lately, and I think its not too of topic to post it here. Is there any place one can get the texts of the various councils on-line in their original languages? How about other texts such as encyclicals and whatnot as well?

Is there a Project Gutenberg/CCEL type resource with these things anywhere that anybody knows of?

Get a load of this:

The corpus is available in electronic form online at www.corpusthomisticum.org. The text is Leonine where such edition exists.

Gadzooks, Jackson! $10,000 for a copy of the Summa? Those who would truly appreciate the text would not, by definition, be able to afford it.

Doesn't the [url=http://bav.vatican.va/en/v_home_bav/home_bav.shtml]Vatican Library[/url] have most of this online?

It only seems to have bibliographies from what I can tell...
