The book: Rare early 17th-century Elzevir edition of Barclay's best-known work, the Argenis, a political romance, resembling in certain respects the Arcadia of Philip Sidney, and the Utopia of Thomas More. The book was completed about a fortnight before his death, which has been said to have been hastened by poison.

 The author: John Barclay (28 January 1582 – 15 August 1621) was a Scottish writer, satirist and neo-Latin poet.  He wrote his major novel, Argenis, in Rome and, according to his contemporaries, indulged in gardening.
