FAT BILL READING

Advis Dv Gros Gvillavme sur les affaires de ce temps.

Lyon, s.n. 1619.

8vo. 15p. Charming title woodcut of Fat Bill, cap on head and an open book before him.

19th-century brown sheep-backed marbled boards (rubbed), gilt-lettered spine title.

This supports Louis XIII in his struggle for power and independence from his mother, Queen Marie de’ Medici, who led the short-lived Revolt of 1619. I have located only one other example of this printing (Zürich). The top line of text is lost on three leaves. Pierre Berès’ pencil note on the front flyleaf.
