Description:
Cologne: Jacques le Jeune, 1685. 12mo. pp. [12], 565, [11], including engraved title from 1687 Brussels edition. Woodcut initials and ornaments. Slight browning or marginal foxing, engraved title and verso of last leaf little dust-soiled. Contemporary vellum over boards. Little rubbed, few ancient stains, traces of red wax to pastedown. Scarce pirated edition -- with the false imprint 'Cologne, Jacques le Jeune, 1685', but produced in The Hague probably a few years later (see Weller, 'Die falschen und fingierten Druckarte'). It is an exact reprint of L. Marchant's Brussels edition of 1687, of which it includes the engraved title. Vincent Voiture (1597-1648) was in the service of Cardinal Richelieu and Louis XIII, and one of the earliest members of the Académie française. Whilst he never published anything in his lifetime, a collection of his letters and verse published posthumously made him fashionable among the intellectual elites. Among his correspondents… Read more
