Carta de el secretario

For this week's manuscript, we're posting a couple of pages from Carta de el secretaro, Antonio Perez, al duque de Lerma de la manera que seharia de governar en la privanza.

The manuscript was produced between 1568 and 1579. It's quite a long letter written by Antonio Perez, secretary to Philip II of Spain, addressed to the duke of Lerma, providing advice for princes on governing from privilege, illustrated with examples from the Spanish court.  Find it in the MERLIN catalog.
