Count Gramont was a swashbuckling figure at the court of Louis XV who became one of the king's closest collaborators. He was involved with many famous figures of the day, such as Pompadour, du Barry, Marie Antoinette, Casanova and the marquis de Sade. His life, as he writes, "was a series of heights and depths," always unpredictable, never boring. At one time he was exiled from court, and he signed on as a first mate aboard a slaver. His African adventures are one of the book's picaresque highlights.Visit myeCRATER store forother great booksand save on shipping!Most books haveshelf wear and cover scuffing.
