Jaume Roig (c. 1478)

Roig, Jaume (rō’ēg). A Spanish (Valencian) poet of the fifteenth century. Although physician to Queen Maria (wife of Alphonso V.), he wrote a work full of invectives against the fair sex, intermingled with many moral precepts, under the title of ‘Book of very Salutary and Profitable Counsels, as much for the Regulation and Order of a Good Life, as for Augmenting the Devotion to the Purity and Conception of the Virgin Mary’ (1531).
