Reissue of this violent pamphlet first published in 1660 which purported to "serve as an instruction to the commissioners, her Majesty's deputy to the effect of the separation [of the] marriage" of Marguerite and Henry IV, a political marriage that was not happy. Each of the spouses had made serious breaches of the duty of fidelity. The need to perpetuate the dynasty lead to a divorce.
A beautiful copy.
