More > d’Italie ou d’Espagne, de villes ou d’îles grecques, des Echelles du Levant ou d’Afrique mais aussi de Marseille, Toulon et Paris; un fonds hétéroclite, inégal, tant les sujets traités sont variés, mais riche de cette diversité. Mais au-delà de cette relation détaillée de l’histoire qui se fait, ces lettres sont un vivant reflet des préoccupations de l’époque dans les ports de la Méditerranée. Certaines, comme le rachat d’esclaves chrétiens ou musulmans ont heureusement disparu.

Ces volumes confirment également la densité des relations, au XVIIIème siècle, de la France avec Malte."< Less
