Latin. Copy of the 1584 Madrid Expurgatory Index, issued by French protestants to show the misguided nature of censorship by the Spanish Inquisition; an essay listing examples of harmless yet censored books precedes the original introductory note. Some mispagination. Contains alphabetical index at end.

Antidotum contra Virulentam... S.l.n.a.: [ca. 1748?]. Inquisition 278

Latin. Brief on the writings of Henry Noris (d. 1704); apparently a Spanish inquisitor's response to pope Benedict XIV's 1748 letter ordering removal of Noris' works from the 1747 Spanish Index of banned books. The Spanish inquisitors did not relent until 1758; cf. INQ349, 359, 360.
