Very rare collection of two religious publications in Dutch printed probably in the same month of February 1603 by Jan Mommaerts.  is a study on indulgences made by Costerus on the occasion of an Indulgence proclaimed by Pope Clemens VIII in the year 1600.  This short prayer against heretics is probably also by the hand of Costerus allthough nowhere his name is mentionned in the publication. Costerus is famous for his relentless attacks against hereretics and his many publications on this subject. This rare prayer ( only one copy known in the Plantin-Moretus Museum) contains at the end two full page wood engravings by Pieter I van der Borcht. The title page has a large woodcut by the same artist. .
