Folio, 720 pp., two full-page engraved plates, engraved title and frontis.Contemporary paneled calf, gilt tooling, raised bands with gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, Binding a bit rubbed, calf flaking off and cracked especially along spine, some scratches on boards, tape repair on endpapers, internally bright; very good. Bookplate of Virginia Hobart. Second edition. Immediately after the English Civil War ended, King Charles I was executed. Just days after his execution a detailed justification of Charles’s role and policies in the war appeared in print under the title Eikon Basilike (1649). Parliament suppressed the text, it’s printing and sale, which is why the title page has little information about its authorship. Around the end of the 17th century John Gauden became the generally accepted compiler, and probably used some of the King’s actual writing. Wing C2076. (Item Id: 108041)
