from Preface to the English Edition: It is a fact, which cannot have escaped observation, that, while French literature abounds with private memoirs and personal anecdote, our own is deplorably deficient in agreeable chronicles of this nature. To the author, or rather compiler, of this work, the want appeared to be less owing to the absence of materials than to a requisite diligence in bringing them to light; in a word, that there existed a supply of latent stores in our own language (buried, as it were, among voluminous records and forgotten pamphlets)sufficient to form a succinct social history of distinguished characters, who figures more or less in every portion of our annals. hardcover (six volumes; Edition de Luxe Limited to One Thousand Copies; No. 273), no dust jackets, covers near new with sharp corners though light edge wear; paste-down title labels on spine worn, small chips missing; with clean pages, binding tight as new and unread (in fact, with numerous sets of unseparated/uncut pages throughout -- i.e., books have never been read). With gilt-edged page top edge, rough-cut at other two edges. With several tissue-protected portraits in each volume. Index to all six volmes in vol. 6, pp. 309-346. . Bookseller Inventory #
