Publisher

Rome: Paulus Manutius,

Date

1562.

Description

This is the first edition of the first book issued by Paulus Manutius as the head of the Rome publisher In aedibus Populi Romani, which initially operated under papal auspices. Cardinal Pole (1500–1558), a kinsman of Henry VIII who broke with him over religious matters, served as Queen Mary’s closest advisor and ended his life as chancellor of Oxford and Cambridge. The two works, background treatises for the Council of Trent (1545–1547; 1551–1552; 1562–1563), belong together, though that is now rarely the case. This copy, in contemporary limp vellum, may be one of the 220 copies (out of 1700) reserved for the fathers of the Council.
