Notes: Printer given as R.R. on imprint; R. Read suggested by STC. Entered into the Stationer's register 25 June 1603. 19-page dedication addressed 'To the Most Gracious renowmed [sic] Christian King; James by the grace of God, of England, Scotland, France, and Ireland, King, defender of the true Catholique and Apostolique faith: All divine, and celestiall graces, mercies, and blessings, be multiplied from generation to generation, for evermore, Amen.' The work is a Protestant response to a Catholic petition to the king requesting religious toleration, and describes Catholic aggression towards England during the reign of Elizabeth I. Gabriel Powel appears to have attacked the same petition from a similar Protestant perspective [see STC 20141]. A 'newly corrected and augmented' edition was also printed in 1603 [STC 18292.3]; variants in the dedication appear to be mainly typographical.
