Very rare early imprint from Poznań, one of the oldest and most important cities in Poland, a Catholic stronghold. There Johann Wolrab, Nikolaus’ eldest son, founded the second city printing press in 1579. Gratiarum actio had first appeared in 1584 in two productions printed in Krakow and Poznań, both amounting to four pages. All these three imprints are extremely rare. The text of the Gratiarum actio is followed by St. Augustine’s and St Ambrose’s tracts on temperance.
