First edition

Germain-François Poullain de SAINT-FOIX Oeuvres complettes

Germain-François Poullain de SAINT-FOIX

Oeuvres complettes

Chez la veuve Duchesne, à Paris 1778, in-8 (9,5x17,5cm), (2) xvj, (20) 504 pp. et (25) 527 pp. et (1) 455 (1) 432 (2) 444 (1)480 pp., 6 volumes reliés.

First Edition collective. A portrait frontispiece and two engravings by Marillier the second volume (one of these prints often lack). False titles and titles in red and black.
Full sheepskin slightly later blonde. Smooth spine decorated with boxes and wheels. Part of title in red morocco, and volume number in black morocco with wheels. Some corners bumped. A thin tear head of Volume I. Fine copy.
The posthumous edition, two years after the death of the author, is distributed as follows: Volume I and II: Theatre and letters Turkey; Volume III, IV, and V: Historical Essays on Paris; Volume VI: History of the Order of the Holy Spirit (which Saint-Foix was appointed historian in 1764). It does not forget the character was St. Foix, who served up to 36 years in the Musketeers in search of literary fame with its twenty rooms, with a rough and quarrelsome spirit. His two historical books are naturally important and significant. Paris trials are not a history of the capital, but an attempt to keep as close, through history the spirit of a people. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
