Attack on the Huguenots, Scarce Document of the French Wars of Religion

Remonstrances faictes au Roy, par les Catholiques manans et habitans en la ville de Paris, sur les placars et libelles attachez et semez le 18. de ce present mois d'Avril, par ceux qui se disent de la religion reformée.

A Paris: Par Annet Briere Imprimeur, demeurant en la rue des Porées, à l’image Sainct Sebastian, 1562. First edition. Papered spine. ff. [4]. In fine condition.

First edition of this scarce Catholic attack on the Huguenots, an important document of the French Wars of Religion.

An anonymously published Catholic attack on the Huguenots who distribute placards and libels against orthodoxy. The prohibition of such defamatory publications was one of the main provisions of the 1562 Edict of January.

Scarce, USTC, and FB (French Vernacular Books) list only one copy under the exact title which contains “manans et habitans en la ville”, however, it seems that the other title (6 copies), lacking the aforementioned words in the bibliographies, is, in fact, the same. USTC 27669 and 74708; FB 40754 and 40753.
