(10), 1040 pp. description of France, revised and enlarged by the author's son, François Du Chesne, arranged by provinces, (25) pp. index. Title-page torn and repaired; moderate staining throughout. 8vo. Later leather-backed boards. Paris (Gyygnard) 1637. Identical to the 1648 edition which is, according to Dufour's bibliography of Paris, the best edition of the voluminous work that begins with a description of the capital and her region allegedly taken from Belleforest's "Cosmographie." In spite of this, the author, court historiographer to Louis XIV, has been called "the father of French history." (Inventory #: 21734)
