Contemporary mottled calf, experly rebacked preserving original gilt spine, new red morocco label, corners renewed, boards a bit scuffed, red and green decorative endpapers. Bookplate of T.B. Hohler. A translation into Latin of the 'Dial of Princes' by the Spanish moralist and chronicler Antonio de Guevara (c. 1481-1545). Originally published in 1529 as 'Reloj de Principes', it takes the form of a 'novel' based on the Cyropaedia of Xenophon, telling the life story of Marcus Aurelius in such a way as to provide moral lessons for modern rulers. Its popularity is now harder to understand, but it was frequently reprinted throughout the sixteenth century and continued to rate elaborate productions such as this one two hundred years after its composition.   Ref: 34348  show full image..
