Henry, Prince of Wales' copy.
Prince Henry, eldest son of James I, was, during his short life (he died at 18), one of the most important patrons of the arts. Books from his library are uncommon on the market.
The book is a study of aspects of Roman life and includes poems at the end, addressed to Justus Lipsius, mentor of Philip Rubens, Peter-Paul's older brother and a scholar-humanist of international repute.
