Le Dernier désespoir de la tradition contre l'escriture. Où est amplement réfuté le Livre du P. François Véron, Jésuite, par lequel il prétend enseigner à toute personne, quoy que non versée en Théologie, un Bref & facile moyen de rejeter la Parole de Dieu, & convaincre les Eglises réformées d'erreur & d'abus en tous & un chacun pointct de leur doctrine. Sedan, Jean Jannon, 1618. In-8, brown granite calf, gilt coat of arms in center, ornate spine, red title page, spotted edges (period binding). First edition, printed in Sedan by Jean Jannon, a former worker in Robert Estienne's workshop and creator of the typeface known as Petite Sedanoise. Pastor Paul Ferry (1591-1669) enjoyed great moral authority in his native Metz, where he acquired a certain reputation and the nickname Bouche d'or (Haag). The coat of arms on the boards is that of Louis-César Crémeaux, Marquis d'Entragues (1679-1747), lieutenant-general in the government of Mâconnais and a fervent bibliophile of his time. Repaired blank in title, and a tear on fol. I2 with a few words slightly faded. Slight foxing. Binding badly restored, modern title page.
