|Pour la Compagnie
|This text constitutes a milestone in the history of diplomatic thought. A diplomat under Louis XIV’s reign, François de Callières (1645-1717) published this essay in 1716 after his negociations for the Peace of Ryswick (1697).
|This volume belongs to the Ronald Dreyer Collection, which was donated by his wife Dr Marilyn Dreyer-Pigott to the Institute in 2014.
|Alumnus of the Institute, Dr Ronald F. Dreyer was a diplomat and international expert in peace-building issues and democratisation processes. He also was a passionate bibliophile, who collected ancient books in connection with his own fields of expertiste.
|Several of these remarkable items have been digitised to allow an open access to these beautiful and rare items, such as the volumes V and VI of the Lettres chinoises by the Marquis d’Argens (edition of 1769). Other books of the invaluable Ronald Dreyer Rare Books Collection are to be digitised in the coming months.
