The Sumptibus Regiis shows that Charles II commissioned this work while in exile. Milton was deputized by Parliament to write a rebuttal to this work, the PRO POPULO ANGLICANO DEFENSIO (see our copy of this for sale V69033). The printing history of the Defensio is complicated as it also came out in Paris and Rotterdam in the same year (see Madan 5th series of The Library). A crisp clean tight copy.
