Memoirs of the Life of Monsieur de Voltaire
Available in Stock
Originally published in 1784, these memoirs present Voltaire's irreverent portrayals of the leading figures of the time. They provide an hilarious insight into the royal courts of Europe, which fought over Voltaire's services for almost 30 years, and an intriguing perspective on 18th century politics and history. This is a new translation, with an introduction, by Andrew Brown.
