An amazing bundle of 17th and 18th century antique letters from France (12 letters - 28 pages in all). These all date to between 1696 and 1774. Incredibly evocative. These are authentic letters dating to before the French Revolution and during Marie Antoinette's lifetime. The French revolution lasted from 1789 - 1799, and Marie Antoinette was born in 1755 and died in 1793. Louis IV (The Sun King) reigned France from 1643 - 1715. The letters have the most wonderful sepia script, and the paper is a lovely parchment colour (handmade linen paper). Fabulous fiscal stamps on many of the pages. Historically very interesting as well as evocative display items - leave them tied with their silk ribbon, or frame them individually. I have more lots of French antique letters, documents and books listed.
