1699 Brantome MEMOIRS Controversy Scandalous Sexuality Homosexuality Lesbianism VERY Interesting Contents / compare@$2,500 Pierre de Bourdeille, seigneur (and abbé) de Brantôme (c. 1540 – 1614) was a French historian, soldier and biographer. Brantôme can hardly be regarded as a historian proper, and his Memoirs cannot be accepted as a very trustworthy source of information. But he writes in a quaint conversational way, pouring forth his thoughts, observations or facts without order or system, and with the greatest frankness and naiveté. His works certainly gave an admirable picture of the general court-life of the time, with its unblushing and undisguised profligacy. We find this same edition for sale elsewhere for $2,500!
