About this Item

Contemporary vellum, all edges sprinkled blue, cloth-covered slipcase with brown morocco lettering piece gilt. An exceptionally crisp, clean copy. Modeled after the Milan issue of 1642 (Praz). Landwehr 702; Landwehr (Low Countries) 581. See Praz pp. 146ff and 483-484. Third Edition (First Edition, Antwerp, 1655) of one of the most popular seventeenth-century emblem books. First published in Spanish, in 1640; first Latin translation, 649. At least 10 edition appeared in 1659, including ones in Spanish and German. Saaevdra was a diplomat and man of letters, but is best know as a political thinker and for this, his most erudite work. The Idea of a Christian Political Prince, first published in 1640, compiles a hundred short essays, or maxims, illustrated with emblems in the style of Andrea Alciato's Emblemata. Sententious, anti-Machiavellian, mainly moral and philosophical in character, it was written for the son of Philip IV. N. B.
