141. MAZARINADES: A COLLECTION OF FRENCH POLITICAL PAMPHLETS FROM THE LOCKWOOD LIBRARY, STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK AT BUFFALO. 1649 -1652.
431 microfiche (1 per pamphlet) also held on 4 reels of microfilm. (Film and fiche held together).
Mazarinades were pamphlets published between the years 1649 and 1652. They were written largely as an expression, often violent, of the public displeasure with Cardinal Mazarin. They were equally a gauge to the sentiments of royalists and, more importantly, they reflected the temper of an age in
transition between monarchy of Louis XIII and the coming to power of Louis XIV. A large majority of the pamphlets questioned the King's authority and ranged from anarchy and sedition to complaints that upheld the King but questioned his ministers' and favourites' claim to be above the law.
