Scarce early French edition of this biographical tractate of "the military talents and the character of Charles XII, King of Sweden", with the indication of "de main de maitre", but without designation of place of printing or of bookseller, written by Frederic II, King of Prussia. First appeared 8 January 1760.
The tractate was published in a small number of copies which the King intended for his brothers, his friends, and his most distinguished officers, as can be seen from the beginning of his letter to the Marquis d'Argens dated from Freyberg, January 1760.
