Note:Ref. BCNI 4053, Funck p. 289: 'ce volume tr?s ?l?gamment pr?sent? est devenu tr?s 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)"
