Jean Duret - Commentaires ou Avertissemens sur l'Edict d'Henri Roy de France et de Pologne - 1602

Edition of 1602 These are comments and warnings relating to the Edict of Nantes
The edict of Nantes is an edict of tolerance promulgated in April 1598 by the king of France Henri IV1, to put an end to the wars of Religion which ravaged the kingdom of France since 1562, and particularly to the eighth war, begun in 1585. This edict granted Protestants religious, civil and political rights in certain parts of the kingdom and, in annexes called "patents", granted them a certain number of places of refuge, including some sixty places of safety and guaranteed them payment by the royal treasury of an annual subsidy.
Author Jean Duret, born in Paris between January 1 and August 31, 1563, and died in the same city on August 30 or 31, 1629,
Our copy is extremely rare, the binding is from the period torn in places, the interior is fresh, however we will note some traces of wetting on the left corner of certain pages and some lines of worms (few) which never affect the text.. The publisher is Rigaud.
