Note: Reprint of Lord Berners' translation of a French version of Libro aureo de Marco Aurelio, a surreptitious edition of Guevara's work, which appeared without the author's name in 1528-1529. The genuine edition, enlarged and revised, appeared in 1529 under the titles: Libro llamado Relox de princepes. This was translated into English under the title: The diall of princes. It is a fictitious account of Marcus Aurelius (cf. R. Foulché-Delbosc in Revue hispanique, t. 33, p. 377-382; Cejador y Frauca. Hist. de la leng. y lit. castellana; t. 2, p. 86-90; Guevara, Diall of princes, with introd. by K. N. Colvile, p. xvii-xix)
