Vermigli, Pietro Martire [Peter Martyr]
[Most fruitfull and learned commentaries of Doctor Peter Martir Vermil Florentine]
[London: John Day, 1564]. Folio (31 cm, 12.25"). 288 ff. (6 prelim. ff. {incl. t.-p.} & 8 final lacking). First edition in English of In librum Judicum commentarii doctissimi, Peter Martyr's commentary on the Book of Judges.

Here, among other points, he examines the natures of government and of political resistance, and debates Catholic reasoning for temporal power of the clergy. => The text is printed almost entirely in black-letter with decorative capitals.

Period-style morocco, spine with raised bands and gilt-stamped leather title-label; blind ruling from bands extending decoratively onto covers and these … [Click Below for Full Description]
