Mémoires du prince Eugène de Savoie, écrits par lui-meme

£100.00

Product description

On title-page: 'Second réimpression conforme a l'édition de Weymar (1809)'. This book, with carefully restored leather spine and corners, and no visible title, is in VGC for its age. One page is loose, cover boards are rubbed. Page 190 has an interesting addition to the text in brown ink and careful hand-writing. Paper quality internally is excellent. Contains 2 portraits. Bookplate of Henry James Bouverie (b. 1781, d. 1832). VERY RARE. THIS IS NOT A CLASSIC REPRINT.

Autobiography of Prince Eugene of Savoy, a general of the Imperial Army and statesman of the Holy Roman Empire and the Archduchy of Austria and one of the most successful military commanders in modern European history, rising to the highest offices of state at the Imperial court in Vienna.

Né en 1663, Eugène est le fils du prince de Savoie-Carignan et d'Olympe Mancini, une nièce de Mazarin dont Louis XIV avait apprécié dans sa jeunesse la compagnie et le charme. A vingt ans, le roi, qui en veut à sa mère pour son implication dans «l'affaire des poisons», refuse un commandement au prince, qui s'était fait remarquer par sa débauche homosexuelle. Eugène s'enfuit alors de Paris et se met derechef au service de l'empereur d'Allemagne Léopold Ier, où il s'illustrera brillamment dans la guerre contre les Turcs durant la bataille de Vienne en 1683, puis en s'en rendant vainqueur à Zenta en 1697, à Petrovaradin en 1716 et au siège de Belgrade en 1717.
Promoteur inspiré de la «Vienna gloriosa», le prince Eugène se fait construire la fabuleuse résidence du Belvédère à Vienne, où il meurt en 1736.
