This reference book examines the collection of the nearly three hundred pamphlets in early modern German and Latin from the earliest years of the Reformation. This bibliography provides not only the expected bookish details such as author, press, format, and collations, but also supplies descriptions of the contents and often even the circumstances which lead to the appearance of the individual imprints. English translations of all titles are also provided. Each title is followed by a summary of the text. An added feature which can be of considerable benefit to those interested in the history of the graphic arts and of printing are notices of graphically represented themes in the many woodcuts, some of which are reproduced in this book.
