Original bright red cloth with gilt lettering and coat of arms on boards. Previous owner's name and a few library stamps, but clean and sound overall. Known as the "King's Minister", Armand Jean du Plessis, 1585-1642, is considered by some to be the world's first Prime Minister. As both cardinal and Chief Minister to Louis XIII he wielded great power and influence. In his effort to consolidate royal power, his chief opponents were the Austro-Spanish Habsburgs. He was key in the return of Quebec to France after it had been captured by the Kirkes in 1629. This copy was in an Elks Lodge library, but shows no soil or damage. 306 pp.
