Note:Ref. BCNI 4053, Funck p. 289: 'ce volume très élégamment présenté est devenu très rare'; Voet II, 884: "The edition is listed among the publications of P. Canisius. In fact, as is explained in the title and stressed in the foreword, it is a pictorial album intended to accompany and to visualize Canisius's Parvus Catechismus. Canisius himself seems to have had nothing to do with it. The model followed was a work of Joannes Baptista Romanus (or Elian)"
The etchings represent scenes from the life of Crist, virtues and vices, the commandments, the sacraments, etc. (each representation within an etched border of some 4 mm)
