Description

Excerpt from Mazarin Et Colbert, Vol. 2 Le recouvrement de sept diamants appartenant au car dinal Mazarin offre un episode qui, nous le croyons, n'a jamais ete signale. L'utilite que le cardinal assignait aux pierreries dont il faisait collection y est clairement accentuee, elles representaient, sous un petit volume facile a transporter et a dissimuler dans les temps troubles, des valeurs toujours realisables soit par cession a un acheteur, soit par nantissement donne a un preteur. Ce dernier mode avait les preferences du cardinal qui n'eut pas facilement consentia se separer sans retour de ses precieux joyaux; il lui laissait la perspective de voir arriver le moment ou les nombreuses ressources financieres qui alimentaient ses coffres lui permettraient de les degager.
