From the Back Cover
This book was written as a theological introduction to the Bible and a vindication of Reformation principles. After appearing in several editions beginning in 1536, Calvin's 'Institutes' was finally published in this authoritative 1559 edition.

Second, the product being in one volume is somewhat intimidating. The print size being such that a senor may find it difficult to read.
Third, The soft back binding is holding up very well.
The translator does a great job using the Latin basically, backing it up by the French. When he has a difficult time of translating the nuance from Latin, he gives you the French translation as a foot note. Reason being that when Calvin translated his own writing into French, he inserted or added some French. Seeing as how I know neither, Latin or French, I thought I would use Thumpers wisdom from the movie "Bambi", 'that if you can't say something good about somebody don't say nothing at all'.
