Rare octavo edition of Calvin's famous work, actually printed in Geneva one year after Calvin's death and with a false place "Lyon" stated on the title page. The half-page woodcut on verso of the title-page with an allegorical woodcut portrait of the 'True Religion' which is actually the printer's stamp of P.
