Simon Goulart l'Aîné (1543-1628), a Protestant theologian and controversialist who had been living in Geneva since 1566, began publishing a collection in 1587 of the memorable things that happened during the League that was established and directed against the Reformation.

Initially made up of three volumes, these "Petits mémoires sur la Ligue" were regularly expanded with new items as the revolt developed; they eventually formed a collection of six volumes ("Grands mémoires sur la Ligue") ranging up to the Treaty of Vervins (1598) between Henry IV and Philip II. [Hauser, III, 1566]

A pleasant, well bound copy.
