Notes: Biblical epigraph on title page from 2 Timothy 3:8-9: 'As Iannes and Iambres withstood Moses [...] as theirs also was.' Epigraph from Augustine, Epistle 177 on title page: 'Your letter could neither provoke me to render like railing speech, nor revoke me from rendring an answer.' Willet is described on the title page as a 'Professor of Divinitie'. 3-page Latin dedication addressed to 'Illustrissimo, Potentissimo, et piissimo Pricipi, Jacobo'. Followed by an 18-page preface addressed 'to the Kings most excellent Majestie.' In 1603, Willet also added a cancel dedication to James to a copy of his most famous work, 'Synopsis papismi', first printed in 1592 and dedicated to Elizabeth I. It was presented to James at Hinchingbrooke [ODNB; STC 25698.5]. The 'Antilogie' is a response to Richard Broughton's Catholic tract 'An Apologicall Epistle', printed in 1601 [STC 3893].
