Nathaniel William Wraxall : Memoirs of the kings of France, of the race of Valois

'I have been reading Wraxall's Memoirs of the House of Valois. it is a very diverting book. The discovery that I make from it is, that men were at that time sooner old than they are now. All the kings of France died of old age at fifty; but ladies lasted longer. At sixty-six Diana Poitiers was so beautiful that no man could behold her without love'.
