* A popular Dutch Protestant diatribe against the pope and the Catholic Church, with several beautiful illustrations: especially the ingenious frontispiece is worth examining. This is the variant with 'Babel-beest' and 'Zo' on page 2, one of five known editions with tiny differences, all from the same year. Published without the author's name. 'Op kosten van den uitgever' is a meaningless note, meaning 'At the expense of the publisher'. The literal meaning of the title is 'Popish meal, dished out in Geuzen (protestant rebels) plates, about the Popish upswing, idolatry, heretical Mass, its fall and end. Translated into Dutch poetry'.
