About this Item

Text in double columns. Title in red and black, headpieces and small historiated initials. Contemporary limp vellum over paste-paper, with two pairs of ties, spine lettered between double horizontal-rules. An absolutely superb copy with light wear to binding, a few tiny burn-holes to text and very minor foxing, some light penciling on endpapers as well as unobtrusive, old booksellers ink marks. At the request of Cardinal de Richelieu, de Marca composed the De concordia, which first appeared in 1641. De Marca (1594-1662) sought to harmonise the claims of the church and state, allowing greater independence to the secular power. The subject was large and one can find in the book, e.g., a discussion of the so-called Donation of Constantine (pp. 105-07). The book was placed on the Index prohibititorum librorum, and de Marca retracted his views. The author was Archbishop of Toulouse and, for a short time, in the year of his death, Archbishop of Paris.
