Schreiber summarizes this work nicely: "A defense of . . . Henri II of France, on whom publicists writing for the Emperor of Germany had cast the blame of having betrayed Christian Europe by soliciting the help of the Turkish sultan against Charles V." Danès (1497–1577) was Regius Professor of Greek and the French ambassador to the Council of Trent; one of his students of Greek was Henri Estienne.
The work also appeared in 1551 in French from the same press.
Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard (sans indicia).
