The subjects of the work include many of the most famous martyrs in Church History: John Wyclif, Jan Hus, Hieronimous of Prague, Thomas Cranmer, etc. The work is complete and includes four index leaves with a list of subjects, which appear to have been printed after the book itself, and are lacking in most copies, including the one in the British Library. A rare book in every respect, it is also an example of early printing in Scuol. Although Falkenstein attributed two books printed in the Romansh language to the first press in Scuol, these were actually printed in Zurich; the first book printed in Scuol was the Romansh Bible in 1679. - S. 67-70 tls. lose, Kanten etw. berieb. einige Seiten braunfl.
