Outstanding edition of the ‘Mémoires de Louis de Pontis’ in a full colour editor carboard binding, in the Art-Nouveau style, and illustrated by Julien the Blant (1851-1936).

The text is illustrated with 12 colour plates by Le Blant, printed by Draeger, and 24 colour labels and engravings by Adolphe-Paul Giraldon (1855-1933), engraved by M. Reymond. The superb full-colour plates that adorn the boards are also by Giraldon, noteworthy artist of the Art Nouveau movement.

Half-leather bookbinding with corners, golden head, marbled endpapers, preserved illustrated covers, 29.5 x 21 cm, 349 pages.

In good overall condition: slightly rubbed cover, some rare foxing, other minor flaws.

Louis of Pontis (1583-1670) was a French marshal. At the age of sixteen, he took up a military career and served in the armies of the king during 56 years. He had just been appointed Marshal when, following a stroke of bad luck and the death of a close relation, he retired with the Jansenists at Port-Royal des Champs where he spent the rest of his life. His memoirs, first published in 1676, relate several military facts under Louis XIII and Louis XIV with style and liveliness, and depict cardinal Richelieu with blackness.

The Colporteurs have been practicing for over twenty years and offers a variety of books with a predilection for the old and the rare. The manuscript also holds a good place and the bookstore devotes a website. They also act as experts in old books for insurance, inheritance and auctions.

A time settled in Saint-Emilion, the Bookstore has transferred its activity to the Bordeaux region where it is no longer open to the public. She presents on the internet a small selection of books, publishes a catalog regionalist (Guyenne and wine) every year, a catalog of rare and curious books (Singulars) every two years. But the books of Colporteurs are mainly intended for browsers and browsers who like to meet the booksellers in the salons in which they participate.
