Publication Date: 1659

First Edition in English. Translated by R.W. "One of the the principal works of Jean-Louis Guez de Balzac (1597-1654), and was first published in French the year before, some four years after his death. It is in a sense a response to Machiavelli, emphasizing the duties of the Prince towards his people and his God (rather than merely to hold on to power at all costs)." Divided into seven parts the works is a discourse concerning court. In addition, the author included an exact table of the principal matter. #1345
