In this book written in French, the author allows us to relive some of the greatest moments of French history, in the domain of La Ferte-Vidame. This site has hosted many illustrous characters throughout time, from the Saint-Simon family to the king Louis-Phillipe, through the Marquis de Laborde and the Duc de Penthievre, and has been a witness to all of the grand moments and great falls of their castle. However, this rich historical place, now belonging to the State, is in danger. This book, complete with photographs and illustrations, appeals to the public in a moving manner in order to save this monument from peril.
The deep-green cover and its gilt are in pristine condition, with just slight rubbing on the back cover. The pages inside are devoid of signs of wear or tear, but have a few personal notes written in red pen throughout the book.
This richly documented book would correspond to any French-speaking person with an interest in history and national monuments.
