bound, £2. 158 ; or, fine copy in vellum, £3. 10s

En casa del Ricardo de Campo, 1597
EXCESSIVELY RARE. The book, although printed in London, was meant
for surreptitious circulation in Spain ; but most of the copies fell into the
hands of the Inquisition, and were destroyed.

1 vol. 12mo. vellum, 36s

Mompellier, 1600
A copy fetched at Paris, in 1880, 155 fr. It is an extremely curious
satire against the Huguenots, from whose ranks the turbulent author had
apostatized. His head was taken off at Rome in 1611, for a lampoon against

the Pope.

gItalian, 17223 BROCARD (Iames) the Revelation of S. Iohn reueled ... Englished by Iames Sanford, sm. 4to. vellum, £2. 10s

1582 Brocard was an Italian reformer, and of course his revelation is anti

papal. 17224 CELSI (Mini) in Hæreticis Coërcendis quatenus progredi liceat disputatio, 12mo. calf, £3. 38

Christlinge, 1577 A rare book, usually but erroneously considered to have been written by the famous LELIUS Socinus (see Barbier); but the imprint is a fabrication, and the typography seems to be assignable to Basel, where Minus Celsus, & refugee from Rome, and one of the small band of Italian reformers, was living

in 1572. It is a noble plea for religious toleration.
17225 OCHINI (Bernardini) liber de Corporis Christi præsentia in

Conæ sacramento, 12mo. fine copy in old red morocco, by
Padeloup, with Girardot de Prefond's name stamped on the leather
lining inside the cover, £2.

Basilec [about 1545]
Girardot's name, with the date 1755, is written on one of the fly-leaves.
This volume was therefore part of his first collection. The label bearing his

name is long, not round.!

Prediche, 5 vols. 12mo. the complete collection of his
Italian Sermons, bound in calf, VERY RARE, £4.

s. n. (? Basilec, cir. 1550-43-44-45)
The complete set of Ochino's Italian Sermons is very rare. Seldom are
more than two or three volumes found together, even in the richest libraries.
The first volume is a reprint, probably executed about 1550, while the others
are original issues, printed apparently in 1543 and 1544. There is no title to

part v.
17228 OCHINI (Bernardini) Dialogi xxx .. de Messia de Trini-

tate, 2 vols. 12mo. red morocco extra, gilt edges, by Derome le

Basilece, 1563 17229

the same, 2 vols in 1, 12mo. fine copy in old French red morocco extra, gilt edges, £3. 3s

1563 The twenty-first section is the famous Dialogue on Polygamy, in which Ochino and a friend argue the question. In his own name Ochino holds the orthodox view, but he plainly allows himself to be out-reasoned by his collocutor, who desired and held it right that one man might have many wives.

17231 OCHINO. A TRAGOEDIE or Dialoge of the vniuste

vsurped primacie of the Bishop of Rome, and of all
the iust abolishyng of the same, made by master
Barnardine Ochine an Italian, & translated out of
Latine into Englishe by Master John Ponet
sm. 4to. black letter, every page ruled with red ink,
very fine copy in the original smooth calf binding,
bearing an elegant geometrical design in gold and
painted compartments (mosaic) in the Grolier style,
with the arms of Thomas Wotton in the centre compart-
ments; enclosed in a morocco case, £150. 1549

This is one of the most lovely specimens of early English
binding of its kind in existence, and enables Thomas Wotton to
rank as a collector of beautiful books by the side of Grolier
and Maioli. The book has come from the Sunderland or
Marlborough library, and was the only “ English Grolier" in

that marvellous collection.

uirum Ioannem Diazium, 12mo. unbound, 8 leaves, £10.

Neuburgi Danubii, 1546
EXCESSIVELY RARE, this original edition being unrecorded by the biblio-
graphers. Diaz finished his MS. of the Summa on the 29th of February,
1546, and had it printed between that date and the 28th of March, when he
was murdered by his brother, In the following November there was
published under the name of Senarclæus an account by Fr. de Enzinas of
the assassination, with an appendix containing a reprint of the Summa, which

even then seems to have become rare.

1559—Carta embiada a

Philippe, Rey de España, de Inglaterra
parts in 1 vol. 12mo. vellum, £7.78

Only one other copy scems to be known, which is preserved in the
University Library at Göttingen. The Carta a Don Philippe is evidently wanting
in that copy, as it was not included in the reprint made by Wiffen and Usoz.
There are two leaves wanting here in the Carta, and the Dos Informaciones is

somewhat cropped, but otherwise the book is perfect.

1531–2 vols. in 1, 12mo. portrait of Servetus inserted, blue morocco, gilt edges, £2. 8s

s. 1. 1531-32 (reprint executed about 1740) There can be no doubt that this was printed in the eighteenth century ; consequently, the statement which appears in the Supplement to Brunet

simply proves that there were two early editions besides the contrefaçon. 17238 [TEJEDA (Fernando de) o Tomas Carrasco] Carrascon, segunda vez impreso (por Usoz i Rio), 16mo. half morocco gilt, 20s

1882 To Mr. Betts and the late B. B. Wiffen belongs the merit of having drawn public attention in England to the great religious movements during the 16th century in Spain and Italy.

The original works having been placed upon the Index are all of excessive

rarity. 17241 (VALERA (Cypriano de)] Dos Tratados el primero es del Papa

RARE ORIGINAL EDITION of this important work, supposed to be the most complete and authoritative exposition of the Socinian doctrines. The author died a year or two before its date, and the publication of the book was

entrusted to his co-religionist, Crellius. 17252 VOLKELII Responsio ad vanum refutationem dissolutionis nodi

Gordii á Smiglecio nexi, 1618—Moscorovii Refutatio libri de

Racoviæ, 1618-17 The Socinians avouched themselves good Christians, and firmly believed in the divine mission of Jesus, but they attempted foolishly to reason away the difficulties of the Trinity. Romanists and Reformers alike held this to be an unpardonable heresy. Reason may be applied, say the theologians, to digest light and easy morsels, but the heavier food which cannot be masticated must be swallowed whole by Faith.
