Geschiedenis - Aantal: 6 - Boek

Second edition of these apocryphal memoirs attributed to Etienne-Léon de Lamothe-Langon.

Head of collection in 6 volumes, complete for the period of the reign of Louis XVIII in 4 volumes published in 1830 and from the death of Louis XVIII until the end of 1829" (2 vol.) published in 1830.

6 additional volumes were published and form the following: Mémoires et souvenirs d'une femme de qualité sur le Consulat et l'Empire" (4 vol.) & Révélations d'une femme de qualité sur les années 1830 et 1831, parus en 1830 et 1831.

This set of apocryphal memoirs or rather this historical mystification were partly revised by Amédée Pichot (with some additions of his own) as the original manuscripts of Lamothe-Langon were written with haste and little care. The first four volumes cover the period from 1814 to 1829. Allegedly, Charles Nodier has also given some parts of the final text.

These Memoirs supposedly written by a quality woman have a real sense of truth. The negligence in his manuscripts can probably be explained by his fast writing and the quality of the works he produced between 1816 and 1840. With no personal income, no possessions, Lamothe-Langon had to write tirelessly to live. He stopped writing in 1844, then carrying a style and a historical literary genre that was hardly up to date. He died in complete destitution in April 1864.

Beautiful contemporary bindings in half blonde sheepskin, spine decorated with red leather labels and gilding. Marbled edges. Decorative set. Binding in good condition, slightly rubbed. Foxing depending on the pages, the interiors remain in fair condition. In good condition.
