225 pages; Very Good/No Jacket. Frontise and protective tissue. Spine and board edges are sunned. Tiny name/date to inside front board. Outside page edges are age tanned. Boards are straight, tips are pointed, spine is square and pages are clean. The French are perhaps the only people in the world who can be both polite and rude at the same time. Barbe-Marbois is not without this double-edged gift, and it adds to the interest of his memoirs. Barbe-Marbois is giving us two pictures here, that of America and that of himself. To us perhaps the former is the more interesting. But we can get a good deal of amusement in contemplating the second.
