Catalogue Note

first edition, rare. Pibrac (1529-1584), eminent jurist and statesman, represented Charles IX at the Council of Trent in 1562. This justification of the St Bartholomew's Day Massacre, written at the request of Catherine de Medici, and addressed to Joachim Camerarius, friend of Melanchthon and Erasmus, caused outrage across Protestant Europe. A second edition, with Camerarius's response added, appeared later in the same year.
