Dealer Notes
First published, in Italian, in 1612 this is Boccalini’s most important work. It satirises many of his eminent literary and political contemporaries and was widely influential throughout 17th century Europe not only for its topicality but also for its anti-Spanish pro-republican sentiments. It was translated into English by Henry Carey, second earl of Monmouth (1596-1661)_x000b__x000b_
