Wittenberg, Nickel Schirlentz, 1542.4to. Later limp leather (dam.), in cloth box. With fine woodcut title-page by Lucas Cranach. 42 lvs.First edition published in 1529. - 'On war against the Turk' was a book written by Martin Luther in 1528 and published in 1529. It was one of several pamphlets and sermons by Martin Luther about Islam and resistance to the Ottoman Empire, during the critical period of territorial expansion of the Ottoman Empire in Europe, marked by the capture of Buda in 1526 and the Siege of Vienna in 1529. In this pamphlet, Luther is less critical of the Turks than he is of the Pope, whom he calls an anti-Christ, or the Jews, whom he describes as 'the Devil incarnate'. He was actively urging Emperor Charles V and the German people to fight a secular war against the Turks. Gullner 740."
