Not in the store. We can order it and should have it in store in 3-5 business days.
In 1664, Moli re's Tartuffe was banned from public performance. This book provides a detailed, in-depth account of five-year struggle (1664-69) to have the ban lifted and, so doing, sheds important new light on 1660s France and the ancien r gime more broadly.
