Letter #5787

Alfonso de VALDÉS to Ioannes DANTISCUS
s.l., [1526-10-31 — 1526-12-10 or 1527-01-26 — 1527-08-23 or 1527-10-18 — 1528-12-17 or 1529-04-18 — 1529-07-27?]

English register:

Looking through Pietro Martire’s letters before publication, Valdés has noticed nonsensical information in them about the Lutheran issue and the emperor’s coronation [in Aix-la-Chapelle, 1520]. He has suggested to the publisher [oeconomus] that he shouldn’t publish them, but the man has requested that Valdés make corrections or write them anew. Based on his old texts, Valdés has written a new version of the letters and sends them to Dantiscus requesting that he edit them.
