Full Sheepskin blond textured contemporary. Smooth back decorated. Part of title in red morocco. A snag with the lower joint missing head. Slot in the lower joint line. Gaston-Jean-Baptiste de Roquelaure, from an illustrious family Gascon, brigadier of the king, wounded at the siege of Bordeaux, saw his land Roquelaure a Duchy. He was small and ugly and saying to himself: "I had to be very ugly: nothing compels me to be the opinion of everyone. King Louis XIV kept in high esteem, he was a favorite, and one day the Duchess of Burgundy criticized him, he replied: 'I find it one of the finest men of the Kingdom because it is one of the bravest. "His jokes and pranks are still famous, but often went beyond measurement, and Louis XIV sent the court for a time. The novel mocks the ugliness of the Duke and accumulates antics and adventures of Duke to the court in a picaresque form and a story of great humor. D'Antoine Le Roy from Barbier. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information!
