Jean Silhon (1596-1667) was first secretary of Richelieu before passing Councilor of State. Entirely devoted to Richelieu, The Minister of State is a political reflection that paints a flattering portrait of the regime put in place by Richelieu. The three volumes contain numerous historical studies and an overall reflection on power, alliances and diplomacy.
Bayle "without question one of the most solid and most judicious authors of his century".
Ex libris 'liber libro' lion holding a shield for the first two volumes. Third volume: ex libris with the arms of Georges Montandon.
