563pp. + 2pp index. Bound in contemporary full calf with gilt decoration on the spine, marbled endpapers. Francis, Saint of Sales (1567-1622) became a priest in 1591. He tried to peacefully convert the province of Chablais to Roman Catholicism. When this failed, in 1596-97 at a ducal council in Turin lobbied for forced conversion. This plan included, ".the expulsion of the Protestant clergy, the prohibition of Evangelical literature, the re-establishment of the Roman Catholic parishes, the foundation of a Jesuit college, and the restoration of the mass in the city of Thonon. The plan was adopted, priests and monks were sent into the country, soldiers were quartered upon the inhabitants; with the additional weapon of exile the Roman reaction was speedily triumphant" (New Schaff-Herzog IV:363). Due to his success, he was sent to Geneva to try the same thing and failed. He tried to convince, and then bribe, Beza and failed. "To his very last day Francis retained an irreconcilable hatred for Geneva, which he designated as the home of the devil and of heretics" (ibid.). Corners bumped and rubbed through. Spine ends worn.
