Histoire de Louis Mandrin, Depuis sa naissance jusqu'a sa mort; Avec un detail de ses curantes, de ses brigandages et de ses supplices.
A Avignon Chez Jean-Albet Joly. 1812 - Small 8vo, 119 x 72 mms., pp. 134 including woodcut frontispiece, original wrappers, uncut; extremities frayed, early reenforcement of spine with cloth. Mandrin (1725 - 1755) is often called the "Robin Hood of France," and there are numerous accounts of his revolt against the tax authorities and his successful career as a smuggler. After numerous escapades and brief encounters with the French militia, he was captured, tried, and put to death by having his arms and legs broken and then tied to a wheel. The first account of his life and adventures was published in the year of his death. The only copy of this edition that I have been able to trace is in the Bibliotheque Nationale. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
