(606 words)

‘The state of Persia in 1660’

Raphaël du Mans, Jacques Dutertre

Date: 1660

Original Language: French


The Paris manuscript BNF – Fr. 5632 of Estat de la Perse en 1660 is probably a fair copy by the author, which entered the library of Jean-Baptiste Colbert, Louis XIV’s minister, in 1682-3. It is composed of 90 folios and is not divided into chapters or sections. A first edition was published by Charles Schefer in 1890, followed in 1995 by Francis Richard’s critical edition, which is used here.
