First Edition, relatively rare. Title page in red and black. This is the only edition of these old memories. Sheepskin half brown speckled slightly later. Back to nerves decorated with nets. Charles Henri de la Tremoille is the 4th Duke of Thouars and Duke of Trémoille, although he died before his father. He began his career with his uncle in Holland paper, Prince of Orange. In 1651, he opposed the Cardinal Mazarin and supported the Prince de Conde during the Fronde. He was arrested and imprisoned at Amiens in 1656. These memories not only of being only the relationship of the event of the Fronde, they are also political portrait of the nobility is putting itself on the scene, since s 'is an autobiographical writing (the original is also held by the National Library). Father Griffet responsible for the 1767 edition would knowingly published these memories to avoid the comeback of tremoille. That offers the Duke of Tremoille his children, since advertises itself primarily write for them, this is an example of life; addressed to his contemporaries, it is a political message. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
