History of the German Peasants' Wars. First Edition(1570). Antique Book Rare
First edition of what is probably the earliest cohesive history of the German Peasants' Wars; extremely rare. The focus is on the insurrections in Upper Swabia and around Lake Constance, which were put down in 1525. Even the 1573 German translation, which is much more common, is regarded as "very rare" cf. Monograms HF and MK in Lat in and Hebrew; "Laurentius Rudanthi"? - II: First edition of this early collection of problems in canon law, intended for legal training. It was composed by the well-known Lutheran theologian and neo-Latin poet Thomas Kirchmeyer (1508-63), who had left the Dominican order in 1526, during his brief year of law school at Basel in 1551.
