Anecdotes sur M. la Comtesse du Barri

MAIROBERT, Mathieu-Francois Pidanset de

Regular price $400.00 Sale

A runaway success in the lead up to the French revolution, this mischievous blend of fact and fiction is sometimes called an off-colour Cinderella tale. This witty and wicked read follows Madame la Comtesse du Barri as she sleeps her way from a brothel to Versailles. The author provides a glimpse into life in the royal court, richly embroidered with imagined excesses. Shocking stuff. French text.
