Geschiedenis, Literatuur, Poëzie, Politiek, Religie - Aantal: 1 - Beperkte oplage, Genummerde uitgave - Boek

A lovely limited edition of 530 numbered copies, this one on laid paper. This edition was produced under difficult circumstances, in the aftermath of the civil war that led to the massacre of the Paris Commune, as an echo of the published works. It was produced on the Aubigné manuscripts preserved by Colonel Trochin, to which Prosper Mérimée complained that he did not have access for their 1857 edition and for which he began this new edition, before suddenly dying the fifty-sixth page having been printed. Charles Read completed the review. Large margin copy with a binding signed S. Petit (Bazas).

In good overall condition, a small snag on the leather of the front cover, lightly darkened paper, ghosting of the bookmark as well as other minor imperfections.

Les Tragiques is a poetic work by Agrippa d'Aubigné which was first published in 1616 consisting of seven books depicting the religious wars. Unlike Ronsard, who symbolically described the effects of the civil war in his texts, Aubigné's work is based on his own memories. Thus, in book V, Les Fers, he mentions the torture of the Amboise conspirators, which he witnessed at the age of eight; or the Saint-Barthélémy massacre (24 August 1572).
