Description

I found the title page very interesting because it is so simple. Many books that I have seen from this time period had ornate pictures and title pages, while this one only states the title. It also says to the king as this book was directed towards King James and was written as a shot at him in a way. The pages in this book are very fragile and very discolored and it seems like this book was used quite back in 1605. The book is also very small and portable and seems like it would have been easy to print and carry so there may have been many copies. I also found it interesting that on the bottom of the page it says where the book was printed and whom it was for and where it should be sold. This may have been to stop people from buying books and then selling them for more, or even counterfeit books.
