The Political Testament of Cardinal Richelieu
The Significant Chapters and Supporting Selections
Translated by Henry Bertram Hill

“The translation is unpretentiously fluent and captures the directness and simplicity of Richelieu’s style.”—Joseph F. Costanzov

"Hill has prepared an excellent translation of the more important parts of the Political Testament; his notes are clear, concise, informative, and accurate, and his short introduction will provide students who wish to delve into the French original with an indication of the road that is open to them. . . . A window to the mind of the redoubtable Richelieu."—American Historical Review
