Fine sammelband, uniting twelve counter-reformatory pamphlets. Apart from the very rare first separate publication of the letter by Duke George of Saxony to Luther (previously printed only in collected editions), the volume contains eleven anti-Lutheran polemics, some printed as disputations or dissertations. The somewhat dusty binding shows roll-tools of the Saints Peter, Paul, and John.

Well-preserved collection of Catholic polemical writing in a contemporary blindstamped binding.
