Secret Memoirs of the Courts of Europe; The Private Memoirs of Louis XV

By: Du Hausett, Madame

Price: $45.00

Quantity: 1 available


Very handsome book, part of a larger set, but a stand-alone title in excellent condition -- even retains its scrace blue dustkacket. This shows two 1" closed tears to top front edge, but are hardly visible in brand new mylar. The dark blue boards have a moire appearance and the paste-on title box at spine is crisp and clean with no chips. Top edges are gilded and side pages rough-cut. Book is a limited edition of 1000 numbered copies of which this is #516. Books are illustrated with images printed on Japan paper. These are photogravures, but the portrait at frontis is in color. Though billed as Louis XV's memoits, they are actually taken from the memoirs of Madame Du Hausett, the lady's maid to Madame Du Pompadour. Very accessible to the modern reader. Six illustratiosn and 283 pages. NO DATE.
