1893 text

Enrico Caterino Davila (1576-1631) was one of the chief historical writers of Italy, and his “Storia delle guerre civili di Francia” covers a period of forty years, from the death of Henri II. to the Peace of Vervins in 1598.

This text comes from a footnote on a diary entry in the 1893 edition edited by Henry B. Wheatley.
