Without place or printer: In verleggingghe des Autheurs, int Iaer ons Heeren 1622, 4to., parchment binding, with incisions to allow for closures, but the closures did not survive, [6]+103 pp., smudged and stained parchment with loss of closures, the first and last few pages are fragile with worn edges (including the titlepage), the last page has been backed with another leaf of paper, page 45 was torn and has been pasted to what seems to be a two sided copy of page 45-46, pages 38 and 102 have a torn corner. Waterstained. The titlepage is illustrated with an elaborate woodcut with references to Apocal. 14, Apoc. 11 and Apocal. 16, depicting a battle scene with warriors on horseback, dragons spitting frogs and an engel in the sky. The woodcut is accompanied by a poem: "Wel Keyser, Spanjaert, Paus, wat spuw't ghy wt u kaekenDrie Vorschen, die met macht te stryden hun opmaecken?Siet doch Fredrick den Heldt, die met sijn Engh'len haest,U moedich trots neervelt, en maeckt u t'saem verbaest."On the front and back of the titlepage there is some handwriting in ink. It has a childish feel to it and may have served as practising writing. Lit: Knuttel 3302 "zonderling boekske". l An intriguing book concerning a commentary on Revelations and a controversial work on the Catholic Church and the Pope. A Latin edition was also published in 1622: "Tvba belli sacri Apocalypseos beati Iohannis adversus magnum illum antichristum, pontificem Romanum". The author is not given, but it is ascribed to E. Teellinck (Rogge) and W. Stephani (Eekhout).
