The Memoirs of the Marq de Langallerie: containing an Account of the Most Secret Intrigues of the French, Spanish and Bavarian Courts: and the Most Remarkable Battles, Sieges and Encampments in Germany Spain and Flanders. – Courtilz de Sandras – First Edition 1708

Short Description

First English edition published by R Burrough et al, London. Octavo, 12, 324 pages, bound in contemporary full panelled calf, no title label, joint cracking but holding well. Browning and marks to text with a flower press image on one leaf. Scarce in any condition and especially in original binding.

An entertaining and revelatory history of the European wars of the period, based on the dramatized account published by Pierre Marteau of Cologne and attributed to Courtilz de Sandras … possibly a nom de plume for Gabriel Alphonse de Sassenger.

The continental version did not mention Langallerie by name … who was an obscure military figure in the French Army, who had fallen out of Royal favour and was subsequently imprisoned for encouraging a revolt of French Protestants.

Secret Memoirs of Langerallerie by de Sandras Perhaps.
