Condition Report

Beautiful illustrated edition. The allegorical anti-doors are composed of two branches each repeated three times. The most representative tables are: the Portrait of Adrien Maurice, Duke of Noailles and Marshal of France, Ptolemy Aulete and the Gracchi brothers at the beginning of the chapters dedicated to them; In the VI volume, a panel depicting Ortensia Mancini, the Duchess Mazarin. The sixth and last volume contains 'Les mémoires de la Duchesse de Mazarin', of which Saint-Real was the reader, friend and perhaps even lover.
