Fine cont. cf. w. spine richly gilt w. the motif of the Jesuit order and that of Nicolas Fouquet (the famous double phi), sides framed in a double golden fillet, red edges. (Joints invisibly rep., some pp. a bit browned/foxed, upper margins somewhat short (always very far from running title), otherwise a fascinating convolute in excellent condition). An extraordinary ensemble composed by seven speeches (all in their first editions) of entrant members of the Académie Française, a speech directed to the first Bourbon King of Spain and two sets of regulation, the first being the one of the Académie des Sciences under Fontenelle and the second of the Académie de Peinture et Sculpture after its reformation in 1664. Two of the speeches are dedication copies, the first signed by Malézieu to Père Jean Hardouin (1646 –1729), the Jesuit librarian of Louis XIV, and the second signed by De Sacy to Michel Le Tellier (1643 – 1719), the confessor of Louis XIV and the spiritus movens behind the revocation of the edict of Nantes. An additional reason of interest is the binding, whose spine incorporates the monogram of the superintendent Fouquet.
