Mary Sidney Herbert Printed Writings 1500-1640: Series 1, Part One, Volume 6 by Gary F. Waller

Mary Sidney (1562-1620), Countess of Pembroke, was born into one of England's most prominent literary and political families. She was fluent in at least three languages and was an accomplished translator and poet. Her two translations from the French, A Discourse of Life and Death, by Philippe de Mornay, and Antonius, a TragA die, by Robert Garnier were published together in 1592 by William Ponsonby. That combined volume is reprinted here.
