PublisherThe University of Pennsylvania Libraries

Bound collection of memoires and a few letters concerning duchies and peerages in 17th-century France. The documents are on varied sizes of paper and in multiple hands and come from a variety of sources. Each of the nine documents has a 17th-century classification number in the upper left corner of its first leaf, but the classification scheme is unknown. Three of the documents have marginal notes identifying their source as Mss. de Bethune vol. 8944, referring to an unknown manuscript perhaps in the collection of Maximilien de Béthune, duc de Sully (1560-1641). The collection seems to have been compiled ca. 1665 (f. 71r, 93v), but most of the documents are from sources dating between 1624 and 1641.
