Description:

Third printing. Inscribed, signed, and dated by the author on the half-title page: "For Justice and Mrs. Blackmun (and Nancy, too) / This sixteenth-century judge's tale in memory of a happy May 17 / Natalie Davis / May 1987." A scholarly look by Davis, a professor of history at Princeton, at a famous impostor case, the subject of a French movie of the same name in 1982, and an American film in 1993 ("Sommersby," which shifted the action to after the Civil War, with Richard Gere and Jodie Foster). Uncommon signed, plus a unique association, inscribed to Harry Blackmun, his wife, and daughter Nancy. Blackmun (1908-1999) was a U.S. Supreme Court justice from 1970 to 1994, appointed by Nixon but a liberal voice who authored the Court's opinion on Roe v. Wade in 1973. The book is unmarked; spine slanted; corners sharp, spine ends bumped. The dust jacket is price-clipped; chipped and edgeworn; several short closed tears; Brodart protected. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory #

About this title:

Synopsis: Tells the story of a sixteenth-century French imposter who convinced a peasant woman and her family that he was her missing husband.

Review: Natalie Zemon Davis...has scoured the legal and notarial records of south-western France to recreate for the reader not merely a highly entertaining story but a vivid picture of the world which fashioned its principal characters. Her observations on property rights, inheritance, customs, family relationships and the mechanisms of the law are welded together by a rare blend of historical craft and imagination...Professor Davis's ability to combine lively narrative, wit, historical reflection and psychological analysis will ensure for this book a wide audience. It is truly captivating story with which to pass a rainy weekend; it is also a brilliantly professional reconstruction of the rural world of sixteenth-century France, which will both stimulate and inform for many years to come. -- David Parker "Times Literary Supplement"
