    Histoire de Constantinople depuis le regne de l’ancien Justin, jusqu’à la fin de l’Empire.

    Traduite sur les Originaux Grecs ... Dediée a Monseigneur de Pompone Secretaire d’Estat.
    First edition, a fine set of this abridged French translation of the Greek Corpus Byzantinae Historiae, by the French scholar Louis Cousin (1627-1707). The work was a significant influence on Thomas Jefferson (his copy of the 1685 edition is in the Library of Congress), who excerpted material from Cousin's translation for his own Notes on Religion, as part of his campaign for religious freedom for the State of Virginia and the United States as a whole.
