¶ Ad 1: "John Owen (1616-1683), English Nonconformist divine. (…) In March 1660, the Presbyterian party being uppermost, Owen was further deprived of his deanery, which was given back to Reynolds. He retired to Stadham, where he wrote various controversial and theological works, in especial the laborious Theologoumena Pantodapa, a history of the rise and progress of theology. The respect in which many of the authorities held his intellectual eminence won him an immunity denied to other Nonconformists." (Encycl. Britt.).

No place (Germany?), 1641. 444 pp. 12º. Cont. limp brds. (Brds. a bit worn, a bit browned/foxed, but w. ample, uncut margins).
estimate EUR 300
¶ One of the many anti-Jesuit writings by Scioppius, all published under various pseudonyms and listed by de Backer-Sommervogel III, 867-70. See also Willems 1620 who describes an Elzevier 12º edition of the same year with 347 pp., and Rahir 1905 (without details) an edition possibly printed by Heger in Leiden. In the subtitle, in our copy as follows: In qua Jesuitarum erga reges ac populos optime de ipsis meritos infidelitas, ergaque ipsum Pontificem perfidia, contumelia & in fidei rebus novandi libido illustribus documentis comprobatur, the edition described in Willems has contumacia instead of contumelia. De Backer-Sommervogel mention a similar edition (12º, with contumelia, 444 p.) for 1642, not 1641. Next to other official pieces the papal Suppressio praetensae Congregationis Jesuitissarum, earlier published in Rome in 1632, is reproduced on pp. 407-423. The work was first published in Frankfurt in 1636 in-4º. Judging from the typography and the paper our edition was probably also produced in Germany. The copy of Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun, see Willems, Bibliotheca Fletcheriana p. 199.
