Contemporary folding Vellum, 12° (Large waterstain in the first two volumes, due to this page 55-57 vol.1 and 192-193 vol.2 damaged. The first free endpapers are extensively annotated with references to other works in an old hand, several ownership-entries on recto and verso titlepage. Rare polemical work by English puritan theologian William Ames, or Amesius (1576-1633). Written in his time as professor of theology at Franeker this 4-volume work was meant as a thorough blast against the Roman church and especially its great Jesuit champion, Saint Robert Bellarmine (1542-1621). The first volume, initially begun also as student disputations was first published in 1625 and followed by three other volumes, the final published in 1628. This edition is the first completely revised and extended edition by Ames himself containing all major theological propositions.)
