Pugio fidei adversus Mauros et Judaeos by Raymond Martin, or one of several variants "Ramón Martí", "Raymvndi Martini", etc. 1967 [1687].

DPJeff is the PM.
DPJeff has scans of the 13th century manuscript, hand written by a scribe. But, these make frequent use of non-standard ligatures which cannot be represented in ASCII. So the MSS itself cannot be processed through DP.
The 17th century edition is functionally out of the question. Good luck getting anybody to loan you a 17th century book! [I've tried].
The 1967 edition is a facsimile of 1687 edition, it should be fine to put up on DP and proof. Sadly, it's rare in its own right and only a few Universities have a copy. A non-exhaustive WorldCat listing is:
