11. A Defence of the Right of Kings, against Cardinal Perron, written by bis majesty in French, and thereafter translated into English by his majesty's leave.

To the above are added five speeches on different occasions. The king wrote also various pieces, in Latin, which it were needless to particularize.

The following lines are found under the print of James, prefixed to his works.

Of more than earth, can earth make none partaker,
But knowledge makes the king most like his maker.
