1929. Part One of Two Volumes. Embellished with photogravure portraits of Cardinal Dubois and the Duc d'Orleans, together with twelve full page drawings by Lui Trugo. This is one of the more important memoirs of court life in 17th Century France. The Memoirs of Cardinal Dubois, French statesman and cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church, has been sensitively translated by the English Nineties poet Ernest Dowson. Dubois became secretary of state for foreign affairs. Reversing the foreign policy of King Louis XIV, he concluded the Triple Alliance of 1717 with England and the Netherlands, and negotiated marriage contracts between the royal houses of France and Spain. In 1721 he was made a cardinal and in 1722 became chief minister.
