Les Vies De Francois De Beavmont, Baron des Adrets. De Charles Dvpvy, Seigneur de Montbrun Et De Soffrey De Calignon Chancelier de Navarre.

Grenoble, J. Nicolas “1671” [r. 1676].

12mo. [xii], 91, [5 blank], 91, [5 blank], 66, [6 blank]p.

Calf-backed marbled boards, gilt-lettered flat spine.

Only Edition (second issue). Beaumont and Dupuy were cruel 16th-century Huguenot military captains. Calignon was President of the Dauphiné parlement at Grenoble. This is the only published volume of Allard’s grand project — Biographie Dauphinoise — that was to cover the 12th to the mid-17th century.
     Contentious, disbarred and disgraced, he published some sixty works, slim pamphlets to fat bibliography. Copies of this edition are variously dated 1675 or 1676 (here 1671; the “V” having dropped out). In good condition, a couple of dozen lower margins uncut and two leaves still conjugate at the outer margin.
¶Haag, La France protestante II: 115; Maignien, L’imprimerie à Grenoble 630; Cioranescu 6893.
