A document of great importance, with a key place in the beginning of the negotiations which would result in securing for the British much of North America. The ESTC notes that this edition may have been issued with the English text, AN HISTORICAL MEMORIAL OF THE NEGOTIATION OF FRANCE AND ENGLAND., which has the same imprint.
