Comments: The most important refutation of Luther's reformed doctrine by an Englishman, this was written by the Bishop of Rochester to quash rumblings of Lutheran sympathy at Cambridge in 1524. It immediately went through several Continental editions - mostly in Protestant Germany. Especially interesting, this copy was bound in central Europe around the middle of the century and bears gift and ownership inscriptions from the 1590s: Paulus Parminondas Abbas Slovanensis and Johann Kyrchperger of Prague. -- Shaaber, Check List F50; Pegg 1517.

Howdy and Happy Fourth of July. Just want to let you know that the Dick Grace book came. A nice copy, as promised. Grace was quite a fellow: the only person I ever heard of who crashed planes for a living and died of old age. I was in The Argosy once, years ago, 1997 or so. Hope to get in again one of these days, but NYC is a long way from here. Thanks again for helping me out with this. Best - Bob H.
