Elyot (Sir Thomas) The Boke named the Governour,
Item Details
Description
Elyot (Sir Thomas) The Boke named the Governour, printed in black letter, lacking title and final leaf, some early ink annotations and scribblings, staining and soiling, mostly marginal, some worming, again mostly marginal but occasionally affecting text, a couple of leaves with tears, later vellum, rebacked, soiled, [?STC 7639], 8vo, [?Thomas Berthelet], [1553].

⁂ Influential work on moral philosophy and concerning the education of those destined to govern. It was first published in 1531 and there were several further editions throughout the 16th century. This copy, with f.91 incorrectly numbered 19 and f.103 numbered 102 suggests this is the 1553 edition; and indeed a facsimile of that edition's title-page has been bound in.
