- Consists of hand-corrected proofs of Alexandre Dumas père's 1854 play, La Jeunesse de Louis XIV, as revised by Alexandre Dumas fils, circa 1874. Written by Dumas père while he was in exile in Belgium, the play was rejected by censors in Paris. Although it was published in the Michel Lévy's edition of Dumas père's Théâtre Complet, the play had only been performed in Brussels, Belgium. This version by Dumas fils contains rewrites, additions, and cuts throughout, and was performed in Paris in 1874.
