COSNAC (Daniel de) - [CHOISY (Abbé de)]....

COSNAC (Daniel de) - [CHOISY (Abbé de)]. MANUSCRIT. Memoir on different things that the Archbishop of Aix told me during different stays I made with him. Small in folio of 109 pages written in a beautiful round handwriting, perfectly readable, light calf, boards decorated with golden arms, spine very ornate, red tr. (binding of the XVIII°).
Beautiful manuscript which seems never to have been printed and which presents several differences (names, details,...) with the one reproduced in the memoirs of Daniel de Cosnac, published in 1852 by Jules de Cosnac for the Société de l'Histoire de France, who also attributes it to the Maréchal de Tessé (Tome II, p. 193)
A fine copy bearing the arms of LOUIS-ANTOINE DE PARDAILLAN DE GONDRIN, Duke of Antin, Peer of France and Marquis of Montespan, Knight of the Order of the Holy Spirit, (1665-1736). (Poullain de Saint-Foix, Catalogue des chevaliers de l'Ordre du Saint-Esprit, P. Ballard, 1760, page 323).
