4to - 25.5 x 20.5 cm.; 96 pp. The Martyrs Mirror by Thieleman van Braght, especially the prized second edition of 1685 illustrated with 104 etchings by Jan Luyken, has been treasured by the Mennonites. During the latter part of the 1900's these 300 year old copper plates, thought to have been lost or destroyed during the Second World War, were found and then obtained by a Mennonite Trust and one offshoot of this was the publication of this book with the etchings reproduced with an explanatory text for each. Minor shlef wear to the cover with a clean interior and a sound binding.
