Defensio Regia. Pro Carolo I. [Leiden: Elzevir (?)] Sumptibus Regiis, 1649. 12mo (122 x 67mm). 444pp. Contemporary sheep, speckled edges, booksellerís waste (leaves from other books) used as rear endpapers; (authorís name in ink to title, lacks original endpapers; remnants of paper label to spine, corners lightly bumped). Overall, a very handsome little book. Claude de Saumaise, French humanist and philologist, wrote this his royalist tract provoked by the execution of Charles I. It was published anonymously in November 1649, and was probably sponsored by Charles II, who is thought to have paid a hundred pounds for its printing. Supporting the Stuarts and defending the divine right of monarchy, Saumaiseís work goaded the famed response from John Milton Pro Populo Anglicano Defensio, published in 1651.
