Le Gouvernement present, ou Eloge de son Eminence, satyre ou La Miliade

£8.99

Product description

This satirical poem, known popularly as the Miliade because of its thousand-verse length (in octosyllabic verse), was printed anonymously around 1636. The poem's endurance and plentiful and specific political references make it a lively commentary encompassing discontent with the increasingly centralized government before the outbreak of the civil wars, the Frondes (1648-53).

Interior pages are crisp and clean with a good tight binding, no smudges or stains on cover of book, slight creases on edge of book, in a surprisingly excellent condition for a used book.
