Chambrier, Samuel de (1744-1823)
Autograph of the lessons of the young King Louis XIII (1601-1643) by his Praeceptors, the philosopher and Humanist Nicholas Le Fèvre (1544-1612) and Monsier Fleurence. Each translation of selected excerpts from the works of King Manuel Palaiologos for his son John, Praecepta educationis regiae, from Latin into French, written by the hand of the young prince, is followed by a dictum in the form of a Latin sentence by the Praeceptor, continuing the lesson. The library received the manuscript in 1796 as a gift from Samuel von Chambrier, a politician and historial from Neuenburg.
