About this Item

Modern paper-covered boards, gilt-stamped lettering in red leather spine label; 12mo (97 x 158 mm); 55 leaves, woodcut vignette on title and at end. Contemporary ownership signature in margin of title-p., some underlining. This letter addressed to Queen Elizabeth of England persuading her to convert to Catholicism provoked the famous controversy between Osorius, Walter Haddon, and John Foxe. It was printed several times in Latin, French, and English. The present edition from the small press of Jean Poupy seems to be especially rare. The author was a famous Portuguese historian and several of his works were translated into English. The perfection of his Latin prose style earned him the name "The Portuguese Cicero;" his well-stocked library was carried off from Faro when the Earl of Essex captured the town in 1596, and many of his books were bestowed on the Bodleian at Oxford. For the Haddon-Osorio controversy see DNB, under Walter Haddon. For other edition, Brunet IV, 249. Bookseller Inventory # D7071
