Description:
Paris: Didot L'Aîné,, 1782. A beautifully bound copy of this verse novel, the work of Jean-Claude Bozerian (1762-1840), "one of the leading, if not the leading Parisian binder of the period 1790 to 1810.

Description:
London: Printed for the author, and sold by J. Ridgway,, 1789. The notorious fraudster pleads her innocence First edition in English, signed by the author on page 261 as issued, giving the confidence trickster's own account of her role in the Diamond Necklace Affair, a monumental fraud which contributed to the outbreak of the French Revolution. The Diamond Necklace Affair was a cause célèbre across Europe in the 1780s. The incident involved the acquisition of an expensive diamond necklace in the name of Marie Antoinette in 1784. Jeanne de Valois-Saint-Rémy (1756-1791), the self-proclaimed "Comtesse de la Motte" (though in fact she and her husband were of doubtful lineage), forged letters from the Queen purchasing the necklace, then dismantled it and sold the diamonds on the black market. The complicated web of actors involved has never been entirely unweaved, and many conflicting accounts spread through Europe. Irrespective of the precise facts, in raising the spectre of extravagant fraud at the… Read More
