LA ROCHEFOUCAULD: Memoirs of M. D. L. R. On the Brigues at the death of Louys XIII. The Wars of Paris & Guyenne, & the Prison of the Princes. Apology for Monsieur de Beaufort. Memoirs of Monsieur de la Chastre. Articles agreed upon by His Royal Highness & Monsieur le Prince for the expulsion of Cardinal Mazarin. Letter from the Cardinal to Monsieur de Brienne. At Cologne, by Pierre Van Dyck. [Brussels, Foppens], 1662. in-12, 2ff.-400pp.-1f. errata. Bound in full contemporary vellum (light spotting, strong on 6 ff with also repaired tears). First edition. One of four editions printed simultaneously. This is state b) described by Tchemerzine VII, p. 42. The errata leaf is signed S, the first headband "à la tête de buffle" is right side up, the letter to Brienne ends well with the word Fin. Title with a sphere. The typographical material is that of the Brussels Foppens, but the work is assimilated to the Elzevirian productions (Brunet III, 848 - Tchemerzine VII, p. 44 - Willems p. 538 - Rochebilière 436). - The last leaf (blank) that Rochebilière mentions is indeed present here.
