Letter #5759

Alfonso de VALDÉS to Ioannes DANTISCUS
s.l., [ca. 1529-04-20]

English register:

Valdés sends Dantiscus the promised dialogue Lactantius de capta ac direpta Roma [Lactantius, or the Capture and Sack of Rome]. He modestly claims that the gilded coating conceals a text of little value, but asks for a gracious reception.
