About this Item

12mo in 8s. .With the true interest of England as it then stood in relation to all forrain princes: and particularly for suppressing the power of Spain stated by him. His principall actions, counsels, designes, and death. Together with a short account of the maxims and policies used by Queen Elizabeth in her government.Two engraved portrait frontispieces, one mounted of Sidney and another of Greville bound in. [4]247pp. with spurious pagination but all catchwords matched and complete. " The 'Life', though written apparently ca. 1610 and perhaps revised later, was not published until twenty-four years after Greville's deah. It is not so much a biography as an historical survey by a disillusioned politician of an earlier and less corrupt time when Elizabeth, though not faultless, was unswerving in her determination to make England great, and Sidney, of all too brief a period, stood above all others as the militant champion of European Protestantism." (English Literature in the Seventhteenth Century, Bodeleian Library, 1957).A hansome copy, rebound in 20th century England, in full brown polished calf, raised bands, one compartment lettered in gilt, endpapers renewed. A lovely copy displaying no foxing, but just a hint of toning. Very nice. Bookseller Inventory # 019943
