JPG images of L'Homme de Cour de Baltazar Gracian (French translation of the Art of Worldly Wisdom) Traduit & commente. Par le Sieur Amelot de la Houssaie, ci-devant Secretaire de l'Ambassade de France a Venise. Troisieme Edition, revue and corigee. A Paris. Chez la Veuve-Martin, and Jean Boudot, rue Saint Jaques, au Soliel d'or. M. DC. LXXXV (1685) Avec Priviledge du Roi

(This is the translation that most of the early European translations used (instead of the original Spanish). It is claimed by some more modern translators (e.g., Joseph Jacobs, L.B. Walton) that the Anonymous (1685) and the 1702 English translation of Mr Savage used this French version, not the original Spanish version, as the basis for the English translation.)
