Paris: Dentu (1805). 2 vols.
A firsthand account of the court of Louis XV and the various intrigues and sexual liaisons.
Interestingly, these copies bear the bookplates of Lyton Strachey, John Fowles and Roger Senhouse on front pastedowns and endpapers. Fair copies in contemporary bindings, worn with one cover detached. A fascinating provenance from three legendary figures.
