      Apud haredes Arnoldi Birckmanni Colonia Agrippina (By the heirs of Arnold Birckman, Cologne): . 1574 - 67 leaves, with errors in numbering. Blank margin of one leaf with slight loss. Light damp stains. Some minor marginal chipping. Overall the text and illustrations are in very good Condition. Small 4to. 215 mm. Signatures: A-H, K-S4. Sig. I reserved for a map of the world, which is not present, though there is a Xerox reproduction of the map. Large woodcut of a globe in a stand illustrates the title. Over 100 woodcut illustrations, maps, plans, initials, etc. The rare original revolving diagrams (volvelles) are in good condition and complete. They appear on verso of leaf 9, and on recto of leaves 11, 28 and 49. Several even include the old strings for calculations attached to the large woodcuts with woodcut tabs on the leaf verso. Latin text throughout. On the title is a small early manuscript ownership that appears to read: Nicolas Caesarii Walonsansis et amicorm. Neat modern full vellum binding. Hardbound. Very Good. Petrus Apianus (1495-1552), was a German humanist, known for his works in mathematics, astronomy and cartography. Born as Peter Bienewitz (or Bennewitz) in Leisnig in Saxony. He was educated at the Latin school in Rochlitz; and then he studied at the University of Leipzig (1516-1519). During this time, he Latinized his name to Apianus (apis in Latin means "bee"; "Biene" is the German word for bee). In 1519, Apianus moved to Vienna and continued his studies at the University of Vienna, which was considered one of the leading universities in geography and mathematics. In 1527 he was called to the University of Ingolstadt as a mathematician and printer. His print shop started small. Among the first books he printed were the writings of Johann Eck, an antagonist of Martin Luther's, but he became best known for his high-quality editions of geographic and cartographic works. His accomplishments as a scientific scholar were also significant: he suggested measuring Lunar distances for determining geographical length; in his observation of Halley's Comet he discovered that the tail of the Comet always turns away from the Sun. Apian developed sundials, volvelles, astronomical and geodetic instruments, as well as a height quadrant and introduced a device to solve spherical trigonometric problems. Rainer Gemma Frisius (1508-1555) was a physician, astronomer and cartographer. He published important contributions to geography and cartography. He developed a method for determining longitude, and proposed the use of a precise travel clock to determine the longitude by comparing the displayed time and the local time. The present 'Cosmographia' is also a significant Americanum, with Apian's description of the new world on folio 30. The discovery of America is here ascribed to Amerigo Vespucchi, and the continent itself described as an island. VD 16 A 3081; Sowerby I, 159; Zinner 2663; Sabin 1750; etc. RARE.

        Bibliotheca Instituta et Collecta Primum?deinde in Epitomen redacta & novorum Librorum accessiones locupletata, iam vero postremo recognita, & in duplum post priores editiones aucta, per Josiam Simlerum?

      - Woodcut printer's device on title. 6 p.l. (last a blank), 691, [40] pp. Thick folio, cont. blind-stamped panelled pigskin over wooden boards (a few wormholes throughout; pp. 155-242 with a worm trench in lower margin, never touching the text), orig. clasps & catches. Zurich: C. Froschauer, 1574. Second edition of Gesner's Bibliotheca Universalis, issued for the first time with this title, and edited by the author's younger friend, Josias Simler (1530-76). Our edition has been greatly enlarged and revised; it now includes approximately 35,000 titles. "Gessner's Bibliotheca universalis is not only a bibliography in the true sense of the term, nor is it merely a more or less comprehensive description of books, listing title, place and date of publication, and publisher. What distinguishes this work over and against the later extracts (Epitomes) and makes it a unique document of the Renaissance resides in the indications relating to the work, life, and significance of the individual authors. The Bibliotheca is, e.g. in the case of Zwingli, Calvin, and Gessner himself, even today a biographical source of considerable value. Thus the Bibliotheca may be seen also as a work of universal biography, a lexicon of writers, such as had never previously existed?"-Hans Fischer, "Conrad Gesner (1516-1565) as Bibliographer and Encyclopedist" in The Library, 5th Series, Vol. XXI (1966), pp. 269-81.

        Decimateria [13.] Centuria Ecclesiasticae Historiae

      Erstausgabe, 4, 1 Bl. Vorsatz, 7 S. Titels. + Einleitung, Spalte 9-1378 Text, 23 Bl. Index, heller Ledereinband der Zeit auf Pappdeckeln (aus geleimten, zeitgen. oder sogar älteren Buchseiten) mit reicher, dekorativer Blindprägung (stilisiertes Blattwerk, Flora, Ornamente und münz- oder wappenartige Stemplung eines männl. Kopfs - seriell zwischen mehreren Umrahmungen aus Linien), Rücken mit 5 Bünden, Einband an Ecken und Kanten teilw. bestossen oder beschabt, das Leder altersgemäß verblichen, die Ecken ein wenig angeplatzt, Vorderdeckel stellenweise mit kleibnen grünlichen Einfärbungen, Name (Friedrich Schecke) von alter Hand auf Vorsatz- und Titels., 2 kl. Ziffernvermerke auf Titelseite am oberen Rand, kl. Stempel auf Rückseite der Titelseite, oberer Rand mit durchgehendem, minimalen Wasserrand oben (sehr unauffällig), sonst gutes, sauberes Exemplar (in lateinischer Sprache) (prez) 1574 erschien als letzte gedruckte Zenturie die zum 13. Jahrhundert. Die sogenannten Magdeburger Zenturien gelten als bedeutende, protestantische Kirchengeschichte. Aufgrund ihres seriösen Umgangs mit zahlreich herangezogenen historischen Quellen repräsentieren sie den Anfang der modernen theologischen Geschichtswissenschaft. Sie stellen (nichtsdestotrotz aus einer konfessionellen, protestantischen Perspektive) die Entwicklung der Kirche von den Urchristen bis zur Reformationszeit umfassend dar. Die wissenschaftliche Methode der Quellenkritik, die Überprüfung von Quellen auf ihre Echtheit und auf ihren Wahrheitsgehalt [] wies letztlich der modernen Forschung den Weg. [] Dieses erste wissenschaftliche Großprojekt der Neuzeit war eine überragende organisatorische und inhaltliche Leistung. [] Es gab mehrere Versuche, die Magdeburger Zenturien neu zu drucken, zu ergänzen und/oder fortzuschreiben. Kein einziger Versuch war jedoch angesichts der ungeheuren Stofffülle und des Umfangs der Bände von Erfolg gekrönt. (Quelle: Hartmann/Reuters: Die Magdeburger Zenturien und die Anfänge der quellenbezogenen Geschichtsforschung, 2005) "Die Magdeburger Centurien legten erstmals einem historischen Werk eine Einteilung nach Jahrhunderten zugrunde. Sie schöpften aus dem Wissen ihrer Zeit (insbesondere Bartolomeo Platina und Albert Krantz), aber auch aus bis dahin ungedruckten Manuskripten, die von eifrigen Zuträgern in ganz Europa gesucht und für die Zenturiatoren abgeschrieben wurden. Eine erschöpfende Würdigung des Gesamtwerkes fehlt." (Quelle, Wikipedia, 9/2015 s. übrigens auch Scheible: Die Entstehung der Magdeburger Zenturien.

Queste "Stanze amorose", che figurano anonime, non sono che il celebre e poco castigato poemetto del Tansillo "Il vendemmiatore", ridotto a 79 stanze.

"Il vendemmiatore" del poeta napoletano Tansillo (1510-1568), ispirato da una costumanza nolana, è animato da un carnascialesco gusto del 'carpe diem', non alieno da spunti scabrosamente audaci. Ebbe molto successo ma fu incluso dalla Chiesa nell'indice dei libri proibiti (nel 1559), nonostante il tentativo dell?autore di riscattarsi con l?operetta ?Le lacrime di San Pietro??. Così Diz.

        Bibliotheca Instituta et Collecta Primum

      â€¦deinde in Epitomen redacta & novorum Librorum accessiones locupletata, iam vero postremo recognita, & in duplum post priores editiones aucta, per Josiam Simlerum… Woodcut printer's device on title. 6 p.l. (last a blank), 691, [40] pp. Thick folio, cont. blind-stamped panelled pigskin over wooden boards (a few wormholes throughout; pp. 155-242 with a worm trench in lower margin, never touching the text), orig. clasps & catches. Zurich: C. Froschauer, 1574. Second edition of Gesner's Bibliotheca Universalis, issued for the first time with this title, and edited by the author's younger friend, Josias Simler (1530-76). Our edition has been greatly enlarged and revised; it now includes approximately 35,000 titles. "Gessner's Bibliotheca universalis is not only a bibliography in the true sense of the term, nor is it merely a more or less comprehensive description of books, listing title, place and date of publication, and publisher. What distinguishes this work over and against the later extracts (Epitomes) and makes it a unique document of the Renaissance resides in the indications relating to the work, life, and significance of the individual authors. The Bibliotheca is, e.g. in the case of Zwingli, Calvin, and Gessner himself, even today a biographical source of considerable value. Thus the Bibliotheca may be seen also as a work of universal biography, a lexicon of writers, such as had never previously existed…"-Hans Fischer, "Conrad Gesner (1516-1565) as Bibliographer and Encyclopedist" in The Library, 5th Series, Vol. XXI (1966), pp. 269-81. In spite of the worming, a rather nice and crisp copy. First fourteen leaves with light marginal dampstaining, not touching the text. From the library of Detlef Mauss. ?

        Francofordiense Emporium, sive Francofordienses nundinae

      Estienne device 16 on title. 4 p.l., 31, 120 pp. 8vo, fine 17th-cent. vellum over boards. [Geneva]: Henri Estienne, 1574. [bound after]:-. De Abusu Linguae Graecae, in quibusdam vocibus quas Latina usurpat, Admonitio. A very fine sammelband, in wonderfully fresh condition, of three important works by Henri Estienne. I. First edition of one of the most celebrated contemporary accounts of the Frankfurt Fair by the greatest scholar-printer-bookseller of his generation: Henri Estienne. Estienne, who had participated in the Frankfurt Book Fair that year, thanks the consuls and members of the Senate of Frankfurt for their warm reception, and dedicates the volume to them. The work consists of praise of the city and its famous fair, which offered to the civilized world such precious riches: horses, arms, wines, food, spices, clothing, earthenware, metalware, and, of course, books. After a section on books and literature, Estienne ends with general praise of Germany, especially as the nation that gave to the world the art of printing: "No nation has contributed so great a benefit to letters since our redemption by Christ." Estienne's encomiastic essay is followed by a considerably longer section (120 pp.) consisting of a quite curious collection of Greek and Latin prose and verse pieces, mostly on the subject of drunkenness - probably to celebrate the closing festivities of the Fair. The majority of these pieces are from the pen of Henri Estienne himself, but also include ten epigrams from the Greek Anthology (also on the subject of wine and drunkenness) translated by Joseph Scaliger.

It is the first work in Henri's trilogy on the defense and glorification of the French language.

        Breve trattato dell' oratore. Padua, Simone Galignani, 1574.

      1574. 4to. 88 ff. With woodcut printer's device on reverse of final leaf. 18th-c. Italian vellum with two giltstamped spine labels. First edition. - Giasone De Nores (c. 1530-90), a friend of Paolo Manuzio, is best known for his criticism of Guarini's "Pastor Fido" (which, as he believed, offended Aristotelian poetic principles). His 1574 "Brief Treatise for the Orator" has a "clear and practical aim: it is addressed to the young heirs of noble Venetian families, that is, to those who will later practise the art of eloquence in politics and judicial administration. In order to enhance the efficacy of the work, he published with it an 'essay ... on the distinctions, definitions, and divisions of rhetoric articulated in multiple tables for easy classification'." (Lina Bolzoni, The Gallery of Memory. Toronto 2001, p. 34f.). De Nores was exceedingly fond of such tables: indeed, he was among the first to identify the importance of structure and methodology as key to the art of memory. - Some browning and waterstaining throughout.

        SERMONS OF M. IOHN CALUINE UPON THE EPISTLE OF SAINCTE PAULE TO THE GALATHIANS

      London: Lucas Harison and George Bishop, 1574. First English Edition n. This commentary on Galatians is one of Calvin's most-read works after the "Institutes," and is the premiere example of the scholarship that, in Thiselton's words, established Calvin as the "first 'modern' grammatical-historical biblical commentator." Maintaining that the Bible contained the literal as well as the figurative truth, John Calvin (1509-64) devoted much of his time to writing biblical commentaries at his residence in Geneva, where it is said that he often dictated, without hesitation or confusion, different works to different amanuenses at the same time. Although one might not agree with his theology, one cannot help but be moved by the rhetorical mastery (he trained as a lawyer) and deep learning that shine through in all of his commentaries. Calvin was a great classicist as well, and his first published work was actually a commentary on Seneca's "De Clementia." Calvin brought that same humanist inclination to his commentaries, choosing to elaborate on linguistic and historical topics, rather than digress into theological polemics as was typical of many early modern reformers. In this work, one also benefits from the elegant translation of Arthur Golding (1535/6-1606), who is best remembered for the first English translation of Ovid's "Metamorphoses" directly from Latin. This is an uncommonly seen item: just four copies have appeared at auction since 1975, none as well preserved as this one.. 202 x 150 mm. (8 x 5 3/4"). [20], 329, [1] leaves (last blank). First English Edition. Recent retrospective brown crushed morocco, covers with blind-rolled frame and diapered central panel stamped with a leaf design, raised bands, gilt titling. In brown cloth slipcase. Title page with ink inscription of Jane Lan[g?]; margin of first leaf of text with library stamp of St. Joseph's Seminary; a few marginal annotations in pencil. STC 4449. Small dent to back cover, title page a little soiled, first three leaves with tiny marginal wormhole, minor dampstain to lower gutter margin, more pronounced at beginning and end of text, leaves a little browned, isolated rust spots, other trivial imperfections, but an excellent copy, generally clean and fresh, in an unworn binding. This commentary on Galatians is one of Calvin's most-read works after the "Institutes," and is the premiere example of the scholarship that, in Thiselton's words, established Calvin as the "first 'modern' grammatical-historical biblical commentator."

        Monumenta sepulcrorum cum epigraphis ingenio et doctrina excellentium virorum aliorumq[ue] tam prisci quam nostri seculi memorabilium hominum: de archetypis expressa. [Breslau, Crispin Scharffenberg], 1574.

      1574. Folio. Engr., ill. title page, (10) pp., 129 plates (numbered 1-125 and 3*, 13*, 21*, and 22*). Half vellum, bound c. 1700. All edges gilt. First edition of the principal work of the Polish artist and engraver, containing depictions of tombstones and funerary monuments from antiquity to the 16th century. Commissioned by the Imperial councillor Sygfried Rybisch from Breslau. Very rarely encountered with all 129 plates. The present copy bears an Imperial privilege on the title page, added in contemporary ink calligraphy, which protected the work against reprinting for the duration of eight years ("Cum Gratia et Privilegio Caes[aris] Ma[jes]t[atis] at VIII annos") - a statement not to be found in any copy available for comparison (in printed or written form). - Binding rubbed; interior occasionally slightly bronstained and waterstained. From the collection of the Nuremberg jurist Johann Konrad Feuerl(e)in (1725-88). A catalog of his vast library was published during his lifetime in two volumes (Schwabach, 1768-79; cf. Bogeng III, note 240); after his death, two sales catalogs appeared (1793 and 1803). Not in ABPC; only two complete copies at German postwar auctions (1959 und 1999 [Donaueschingen]), the latter certainly without the present privilege.

        Annotationi et discorsi sopra alcuni luoghi del Decameron, di m. Giovanni Boccacci, fatte dalli molto magnifici sig. deputati da loro altezze serenissime, sopra la correttione di esso Boccaccio, stampato l'anno MDLXXIII.

      4to. (20) leaves, 142 pp., (9) leaves. With the printer's device on the title-page and at the end, and a woodcut portrait of Boccaccio and Fiammetta. 17th-century vellum over boards, manuscript title on the spine, blue edges, marbled endpapers, some light marginal foxing, but a genuine and wide-margined copy.FIRST EDITION (issue with the date 1574 on the title-page and the leaves Aa2-Aa3 partially reset -see W.A. Pettas, The Giunti of Florence, New Castle, DE, 2013, pp. 545-546, no. 504).The Decameron appeared for the first time in the Index created by Paul IV in 1559, what unconditionally blocked any subsequent publication and circulation (cf. J.M. de Bujanda, et. al. ed., Index de Rome: 1557, 1559, 1564: les premiers index romains et l'index du Concile de Trente, Sherbrooke, 1990, p. 384, no. 91). After Paul's IV death the more moderate pope Pius IV issued after the closing of the Council of Trent a new Index (1564), which conceded, probably under pressure from scholars, printers and book-dealers, that the Decameron could be produced and circulated after undergoing an official expurgation. This concession was an incredible opportunity both culturally and economically. In an attempt to reclaim both the text and the profits from its production, the dukes of Tuscany used their influence to secure the work for Florence. The result of this lobbing is the first censored edition of the Decameron published in 1573 by a group of Florentine scholars (&lsquo,Deputati'), such as Vincenzo Borghini, Antonio Benivieni, Francesco Cattani da Diacetto, Lodovico Martelli, Baccio Valori, Agnolo Guicciardini, Jacopo Pitti, Bastiano Antinori and Baccio Baldini, headed by Vincenzo Borghini. The work of the &lsquo,Deputati' was justified in the present outstanding series of notes and commentaries. Dedicated by the printers Filippo and Jacopo Giunti to Cardinal Fernando de' Medici, it proved to be of lasting value and was still reprinted in 1804 (cf. C. Tapelli M. Pozzi, L'edizione del &lsquo,Decameron' del 1573: lettere e documenti sulla rassettarura, in: &ldquo,Giornale storico della letteratura italiana&rdquo,, 165, 1988, pp. 54-84, 196-227, 366-398, 511-544, and G. Chiecchi, Le &lsquo,Annotationi et Discorsi' sul Decameron del 1573 dei deputati fiorentini, Rome, 2001, passim).Although the &lsquo,Deputati' had worked in constant agreement with the Vatican and with the Congregation of the Index, Fra Paolo Costabili, Master of the Sacred Palace, forbade the Giunti the sale of the expurgated Decameron. This led them to seek to recoup their losses with a second revised version in 1582 edited by Leonardo Salviati. This edition was reprinted about a dozen times in the next fifty years, but the Decameron officially remained prohibited until the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965).In the present volume is also printed an Italian version Boccaccio's last will of August 281374. His own natural children had all died before him. So he left his library to his father confessor, the Augustinian Monk Martino da Signa, and after his decease to the convent of Santo Spirito in Florence, with the recommendation to let everybody use and copy the books if they were needed. His small property he bequeathed to his brother Jacopo. When Montaigne visited Florence in 1581, he saw the Testament in the archives of the Giunti, and he describes in touching words the deep impression that the document made on him (cf. M. Papio, An Intimate Self-Portrait. Testamentum, in: &ldquo,Boccaccio: A Critical Guide to the Complete Works&rdquo,, V. Kirkham al., eds., Chicago, 2013, pp. 341-351).Vincenzo Borghini was a Florentine scholar and essayist of many talents. He was ordained a Benedictine priest in 1540, and became Prior of the Foundlings Hospital in Florence, and simultaneously one of the most influential and faithful courtiers of Cosimo and later of Francesco de' Medici. He was described as the first modern literary critic, notably for his awareness of individual poetic creativity and the need to judge literary works as individual creations. And also was regarded as the first modern textual critic, using his method and ideas for his own &lsquo,new philology' and for his national edition of the Divina Commedia. An éminence grise fiercely protective of Florence's intellectual and artistic heritage, he was the inspiration behind the foundation of the Accademia della Crusca (1583, J.R. Woodhouse, Borghini and the Foundation of the Accademia della Crusca, in: &ldquo,Italian Academies of the Sixteenth Century&rdquo,, D. S. Chambers F. Quiviger, eds., London, 1995, pp. 165-174).The fundamental work he did on the Annotazioni would later form the basis for the work of Salviati and for the first Vocabolario della Crusca of 1611. A great collaborator with contemporary artists, he proposed designs for many artistic enterprises, including themes for the decoration of the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, especially the Vasari designs in the Sala dei Cinquecento. After 1572 he acted as the grand ducal lieutenant in Florence's Accademia delle Arti del Disegno, commissioning and paying artists such as Benvenuto Cellini and Vincenzio Danti. Borghini's vast output remains largely unpublished, not least because of his unsystematic method of jotting down sporadic notes, and the difficulty of some of his handwriting, though two large volumes of historical Discorsi (1584&ndash,5) were published after his death, containing essays and studies on the history of Tuscany, Tuscan bishoprics, numismatics, Florentine archaeology and architecture, Tuscany's Roman inheritance, and many other topics. His important correspondence with some of the most notable literary figures of the time, published as Prose fiorentine (1745), marks him out as one of the most significant of cultural advisers, on subjects ranging from Roman archaeological remains to linguistic theory.Borghini's fame reached a new height in the 19th century, and selections from his manuscripts were published sporadically, notably La Ruscelleide (1898), a satirical polemic against the linguistic ineptitude of Girolamo Ruscelli, and the brief autobiographical notes Ricordi intorno alla sua vita (1909). Most recently some two thousand of his letters were discovered in the Florentine foundlings' hospital (cf. Fra lo &lsquo,Spedale' e il Principe. Vincenzio Borghini, filologia e invenzione nella Firenze di Cosimo I. Atti del Convegno, Firenze, 21-22 marzo 2002, G. Bertoli R. Drusi, eds., Padua, 2005, passim).Edit 16, CNCE1950, Adams B-2167, Index Aureliensis, 120.385, Gamba, no. 41.

      Apud Vicentium Accoltum, 1574. - Apud Vicentium Accoltum, Rome 1574, in-8 (11,5x18,5cm), (40f.) 331ff., relié. - originale, insolito Edition. Bound in tempo pieno pergamena. Indietro con i nervi. Titolo in penna rossa e nera. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, rare, incomplète du second volume (Livre X à XV). Très nombreux diagrammes in texte. Page de titre dans un portique Renaissance. Reliure en plein velin d'époque. Dos à nerfs. Titre à la plume rouge et noire. Nombreux trous de vers sur le dos. Une déchirure le long des 2 premiers caissons. Coiffe de tête en partie arrachée. Manque la première page de garde avant le titre, et la dernière également. Large trace de mouillure jaunâtre sur 8 feuillets préliminaires, idem du feuillet 104 à 112, idem du feuillet 172 à 193, idem du feuillet 287 à la fin. Traduction latine des 15 livres d'Euclide, auxquels l'auteur apporte d'importantes contributions, par exemple l'usage du tiers exclu. L'ouvrage deviendra très rapidement un outil de base pour les mathématiciens, notamment pour Descartes et Leibniz. Grâce à cet ouvrage, il fut surnommé l'Euclide du XVIe siècle. Christophorus Clavius, Jésuite originaire de Bamberg, est un mathématicien très important de la fin de la Renaissance et du début du XVIIe. S'il n'a pas bouleversé les mathématiques par ses découvertes, son enseignement et sa consolidation de l'édifice euclidien seront déterminantes pour son époque. Son Algebra sera ainsi la première à utiliser les symboles - et + en Italie, et le point décimal. En logique, la loi de Clavius (consequentia mirabilis) est un raisonnement qui établit la vérité d'une proposition à partir de l'inconsistance de sa négation. Ce raisonnement de logique propositionnelle signifie que toute proposition impliquant sa propre négation est nécessairement faux. Clavius est en outre responsable du calendrier actuel, et ses contributions astronomiques sont également intéressantes.

        Le Réveille-matin des Francois et de leurs voisins. Composé par Eusèbe Philadelphe Cosmopolite, en formes de Dialogues.

      A Edimbourg de l'imprimerie de Jaques James [Strasbourg, Bernard Jobin] 1574 2 parties en 1 vol. in-8 de 20 ff.n.ch. (dont 1 blanc) 159 pp. et 192 pp., veau brun glacé, dos à nerfs orné de filets dorés, dentelle intérieure, double filet doré sur les plats, tranches dorées (Gruel). Première édition collective des deux dialogues imprimés sous une fausse adresse écossaise. Editon originale de la seconde partie ; la première partie ayant été publiée en latin en 1573. Attribué à Nicolas Barnaud, alchimiste dauphinois originaire de Crest, ce pamphlet protestant a été probablement écrit par plusieurs auteurs ; le catalogue de la B.N.F. propose Théodore de Bèze et Hugues Doneau. Célèbre pamphlet appelant à l'insurrection contre les abus de la Cour peu de temps après les massacres de la Saint-Barthélémy. Caché derrière le pseudonyme d'Eusèbe Philadelphe, l'auteur du Réveille-Matin emprunte certaines théories à Théodore de Bèze et à Etienne de La Boétie ; la résistance à l'oppression y est éloquemment plaidée. Très hardi, il propose la vente des biens d'église, le mariage des prêtres, la création d'une milice. Bel exemplaire parfaitement établi par Gruel. Rothschild, 3125 ; Brunet, IV, 599-600 ; Haag, I, 251-256 ; Hauser, SHF, 2150.
