3/4 green leather binding with tooled bands on the spine; red leather spine label with gilt lettering and gilt banding; marbled boards and marbled page edges on all sides; illustrated with frontis engraving of Catherine de Medici, Queen of France. Boards with wear to the edges; spine is still supple and binding is tight and complete; spine label chipped at the edges; page edges dusty and faded. Volume 2 only. Elisabeth of Valois (Spanish: Isabel; 2 April 1545 ¿ 3 October 1568) was a Spanish queen consort. The eldest daughter of Henry II of France and Catherine de' Medici, she married Philip II of Spain as his third wife. She was born in the Château de Fontainebleau. Elisabeth had originally been betrothed to Philip's son, Carlos, Prince of Asturias, but political complications unexpectedly necessitated instead a marriage to Philip. Elisabeth of Valois is a central character in Thomas Otway's play Don Carlos, in Schiller's play of the same name, and in Verdi's opera adapted from Schiller's play, also titled Don Carlos. All these works imply a tragic romance between Elisabeth and Carlos, suggesting that they were really in love with each other when Elisabeth was forced to break off her engagement to Carlos and marry his father Philip.
