Title: De monarchia Hispanica, 1653
Author: Tommaso Campanella
Publisher: Amsterodami, apud Ludouicum Elzeuirium
Condition: Very Good
A vellum bound Elzevier edition of the utopian tale De monarchia Hispanica, written by the famous friar, philosopher, astrologer, and poet Tommaso Campanella. Written around 1600 AD, and rewritten shortly after, this work prophesizes and advocates the coming of a universal Christian monarchy, led by the Catholic Church king of Spain. Oddly enough, it was first published in German in 1620, then later translated from Campanella's original manuscript. The first Latin translation by the House of Elzevier was published in 1640, shortly followed after by the first English edition in 1654.
One volume finely bound in vellum, in 12mo/24mo, 376 pages
On note of condition this volume is in very good shape, with staining noted to the binding and minor wear and rubbing at the corners. There is little to no foxing throughout.
