Rare. First edition of Remerciement à M. le cardinal Mazarin by Pierre Corneille, nicely printed in quarto format with the royal coat of arms on the title, engraved on wood.

These 4 leaves were published when Corneille published "La mort de Pompée" in 1644 dedicated to Mazarin.
Naudé tells us in his “Mascurat” that the poet had received a pension of one hundred pistoles in 1643, probably renewed by Mazarin.

The Remerciement includes the following exclamation:

"Quand j’ai peint un Horace, un Auguste, un Pompée,
Assez heureusement ma Muse s’est trompée,
Puisque sans le savoir, avecque leur portrait
Elle tirait du tien un admirable trait. "

Of interesting for information on the relationship between the poet and the cardinal as well as for the study of literary activity around Mazarin, of which the Mazarinades are the most well-known facet.
