Title: Annales Franc-Comtoises
Description: 1869. CIRCOURT, Count Adolphe de. Annales Franc-Comtoises. Besancon, 1869. A historical periodical on Franche-Comtois, a region among the Jura mountains in Eastern France. Two issues (September and October 1869), containing "Memoires du Jules Chiflet, Abbe de Balerne" by Count Adolphe de Circourt, both inscribed by de Circourt. A prominent statesman and literary figure in Paris, de Circourt was Ambassador to Berlin, friendly with William IV and with the deposed French Royal Family. He and his wife, a member of the noble Tolstoi family, kept a famous Paris literary salon from 1836 to 1863, frequented by Turgenev, de Vigny, Humboldt and Merimee. De Circourt was greatly interested in the USA; his correspondence with Alexis de Tocqueville is still in print, and he translated works on American history. Printed wrappers, lightly stained and worn. Together with the July 1865 issue, rather more worn. .
