    Louis XIV's medals and their book

    Since 1694, the "Petite Académie" devoted themselves to royal numismatics. They offered to the king in 1702 the luxurious volume of the Médailles sur les principaux événements du règne de Louis le Grand (2nd completed edition in 1723). The medals will be studied in all their various aspects. The book plays its part in royal propaganda, using its images. It ranks among the albums of the monarchy and among the books of numismatics. The writing of history shows there its own characteristics. The medals as well as the book will exert an influence. History, literary history, art history, book history are invited to study this monument of the "Grand Siècle" which has not drawn all the attention that it deserves.
