Siècle de Louis XIV (IB)

The concluding part of the introduction to this definitive edition of the Siècle de Louis XIV. This volume traces the history of the text from early manuscript drafts, through its evolution in print up to the first posthumous edition. It also includes a suite of critical editions presenting various texts that surround and shed light on the Siècle: manuscript notes, open letters published by Voltaire in periodicals, and forewords and prefaces from variant print editions.
