De Republica Anglorum

£8.99

Product description

Published 1982.

Much of the jacket is discoloured, some wear to edges. Some writing on top of front end papers, pages otherwise clean and intact.

De Republica Anglorum was written by Sir Thomas Smith in 1562-5 when he was Queen Elizabeth's ambassador to France. His avowed intention was to describe English social institutions, judicial system and governmental procedures for the benefit of foreigners, explaining in what way the English system 'differs from the others'. This edition endeavours to establish the original text as written in the 1560s. The discovery of several manuscript texts written before the 1583 printed edition and their collation with the 1583 edition allow us to see the nature and extent of the alterations made.
