Paris, Hachette, 1879-1906, strong in 8 °, (15 x 23 cm), 19 volumes, half-chagrin brown binding with corners, covers embellished with golden threads, a few discreet scratches, wear in the corners sometimes, some foxing sometimes, halos in the eleventh volume otherwise well preserved, without the last table volume published in 1930. Beautiful copy on laid paper in a binding signed by Lasneret The Memories of Saint-Simon are a posthumous work of Louis de Rouvroy, Duke of Saint-Simon (1675-1755), whose manuscript comprises nearly 3000 pages. Considered a monument to the French literature, this text had a decisive influence on authors such as Chateaubriand, Stendhal, Balzac and Proust. The title Memories of Saint-Simon is that of the original manuscript, kept at National Library of France. The story covers about thirty years, from 1691 to 1723, i.e. the end of the reign of Louis XIV and the period of Regency. The Memories of Saint-Simon, written in the years 1739-1749, were seized by order of Duke of Choiseul in 1760 and could only appear in the form of extracts between 1781 and 1790, in Paris and to Brussels. The first complete edition had to wait for the Restoration and the years 1829-1830. Thanks … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]
