Exceedingly rare, allegedly new, edition of this work on the peace treaty between France and Spain, The Treaty of the Pyrenees. An edition printed by Sebastien Cramoisy in Paris, also in 1659, and despite the fact this has “nouvelle edition” printed on the title-page it is not entirely clear if this in fact was printed first or is a pirate-edition since the Cramoisy-edition seems to be expanded compared to this present edition.

We have not been able to trace a single copy at auction and OCLC only list one copy (The Wiesbaden State Library, Accession no. 1260124839)

The Treaty of the Pyrenees was a peace treaty signed on November 7, 1659, between France and Spain. It ended the conflict known as the Franco-Spanish War, which had been ongoing since 1635 as part of the wider Thirty Years' War. The treaty was negotiated and signed in the town of the Pyrenees Mountains, which served as a neutral ground between the two powers.
