Louis XIV v Innocent XI

The French King’s Memorial to the Pope.

London : Printed for Joseph Hindmarsh. 1688. Small 4to, A-D4, (lacking A1 & D4, both blank), French and English text on facing pages, disbound.
The French text, and English translation, of a letter from Louis XIV to Cardinal D’Estrees(“written from Versailles, Sept. 6. 1688”) listing his grievances against Pope Innocent XI and requesting D’Estees to read them out to him. His tone seems tantamount to a declaration of war - “... you shall once more represent to him the just Reasons he has given me of considering him no longer otherwise than as a Prince engaged with my Enemies.”
