Comments: The portrait of Toussaint Louverture is based on a painting of him from the collection of his son, Isaac.

Just a quick message to let you know that I have received the book last week, 1726, in a French armorial binding. Just beautiful, a great addition to my collection. Thanks again for selling such quality items and hope to trade with you again. Best regards from France - Adrien
