Title-page of volume I mounted and repaired, with some ink markings, some minor dampstaining to a few leaves in volume I. Minor rubbing to binding. Fine. [Together With]: Raphael Bluteau.

    A French scholarly priest who spent much of his life in Portugual, Bluteau (1638-1734) was caught in the tension and eventual war between France and Portugal, causing him much difficulty. He wrote several works, the best known being the present title, which is still used by scholars even today.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
