- Curator's comments
- This broadside calls upon the Bohemian estates to support now, after Frederick V's defeat, Emperor Ferdinand II. However, according to Harms, the author seems to write from a Protestant perspective, and is critical of both the expelled Frederick V and the approaching Imperial armies.
The image and the individual text columns have been cut and pasted on one sheet, and lack the vertical type ornaments which are illustrated in Paas.
For an impression from a 1632 edition of the same subject, see BM 1876-5-10-642.
