This is the catalogue of an exhibition at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris organized to mark the third centennial of cardinal Mazarin's death. It examines Mazarin's roles in the seventeenth century as a statesman and as a collector of books and of works of art. Includes 16 plates of black-and-white illustrations. This copy is worn and slightly soiled, and the spine is torn and damaged. A loosely laid-in bookplate indicates that this copy came from the reference library and stock of H.P. Kraus.
