The Latin version of Patrick Forbes's (1564-1635) major work, An Exquisite Commentarie upon the Revelation of Saint John, translated by his son John Forbes of Corse (1593-1648). The work is deeply anti-Catholic and Puritan, insisting that the ritual in Catholic worship was corruption and that the devil had already been unleashed, during the reign of Pope Boniface VIII around 1300.

Here in a very attractive red morocco binding.
