(24, folding table) 224, 298 (6), (40, 6) p. Contemporary folding Vellum with 4 raised bands, 4° (The text block is slightly browned throughout, the bottom corner of page 115-118 is teared off, therefore a few letters of the marginal comments are missing. Rare and important collection of confessions, edited by the Swiss Reformed theologian Jean-François Salvard, c.1530-1585 (with the help of Theodore Beza and Lambert Daneau). The work contains a compilation of a total of 11 Protestant confessions of faith, beginning with the Confession of Augsburg of 1530 and ending with the Bohemian Confession of 1575. The work incorporates Swiss, French, English and Dutch Confessions and was intended as a defense of the Protestant, and particulary Reformed, doctrine against the constant attacks of Romanists and Lutherans.)
