Eikōn basilikē : The pourtraicture of his Sacred Majesty in his solitudes and sufferings
London: R. Norton for Richard Royston, 1681. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "I intended not only to oblige my friends, but Mine enemies also" ― John Gauden, Eikon Basilike The autobiography of King Charles I of England was published shortly after he was executed following the English Civil War. Known as 'Eikon Basilike,' this diary gives light to the life of the king, as well as prayers, and secrets of the English military that was led into the Civil War. While it is not certain that Charles I was the author or not, it is recognized as a work of Royalist propaganda and quite popular, even though it was highly disapproved of. This 1681 Royston printing features the expected allegorical frontispiece which depict Charles I as a Christian martyr.
