Title: The Young Mazarin
Description: London, Thames and Hudson. 1977, First Edition. (ISBN: 0500870047). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A near Fine clean, tight and unmarked copy which has a little light foxing to top edge. Translated from the French by Stanley Baron. 199 pages and 43 illustrations. The book is based on unpublished documents in France and Italy and not only provides new information on the formative years of the cardinal-minister but also deepens understanding of manners and mentalités in a specific period of European history. Mazarin's career in France after 1642 is well known, but his years in papal service - which brought him into contact with Richelieu and led to his permanent move to France - were less appreciated. C3A. Very Good/Very Good.
