Lot Details
[LUTHER (MARTIN]
A Watch-word for Wilfull Women. An Excellent Pithie Dialogue betweene Two Sisters, of Contrary Dispositio[n]s: the One a Vertuous Matrone: Fearing God, the Other a Wilfull Huswife: of Disordered Behavioure, 2 parts in one, black letter, title within typographical border (laid down with slight loss to one blank corner), final leaf laid down with loss of text, later calf, gilt lettered "Imprinted by Marshe 1581" on upper cover, rebacked [STC 21826.8, formerly 1063], 8vo, Thomas Marshe, 1581

Footnotes

  • VERY SCARCE, ESTC recording only 2 copies. The first part is a translation of Der bösen Weiber Zuchtschül, a dialogue concerning the conduct of women. Part 2 (beginning on E4v) is an English translation by Walter Lynne of a sermon on matrimony by Martin Luther. This copy collates pi1-4, B-G1-8, H1-2, seemingly complete but differing from that on ESTC. The catchword on E8 does not match F1 but apparently correct.
