Description

Gabriel Naudé (1600–1653), French physician and bibliographer, was employed as a librarian by some of the great ecclesiastical book collectors of his time, including Cardinals Bagui, Berberini, and Richelieu, and, for ten fruitful years, Cardinal Mazarin. The aim of Naudé’s Advis was to provide guidelines that “a man might follow concerning the choice of books, the means of procuring them, and their arrangement in the most useful and attractive manner.”
