1705 History of Nuestria in 1588 Bourgueville Caen Normandy FAMOUS Counterfeit

Charles de Bourgueville was a 16th-century historian who is primarily remembered for his book 'Antiquities of Neustria'. This book was one of the best works on the Duchy of Normandy and the cities of northern France, particularly Caen.
Note on printing: According to sources Graesse, Frere, and Brunet,
"It was Pierre-François Doublet who printed in Caen, in 1705, this counterfeit in-4; itself became quite rare. The family of Charles de Bourgueville, after his death and for reasons which it is today rather difficult to know destroyed a great number of copies of his work; so that years later it would become an extreme rarity".

Cherry on front flyleaf. 1927 Half-Leather. iv, 325 pp. 8vo. No binder's ticket, but appears to be a contemporary custom rebinding: blue leather spine and corners over blue cloth, gilt titles and rules, top edge gilt, new end sheets. "The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin is the traditional name for the unfinished record of his own life written by Benjamin Franklin from 1771 to 1790; however, Franklin himself appears to have called the work his Memoirs. Although it had a tortuous publication history after Franklin's death, this work has become one of the most famous and influential examples of an autobiography ever written. Franklin's account of his life is divided into four parts, reflecting the different periods at which he wrote them.
