Excerpt from Gaspard De Coligny: Admiral of France

HE most important lives of Coligny are those of the late Comte Jules Delaborde and Professor Erich Marcks. The three volumes of M. Delaborde must always form the basis of any study of the Admiral. Besides printing many indispensable documents, he gives either in full or in part the majority of Coligny's letters which are to be found in the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, and in the archives of Strasburg, Switzerland, and Turin. They are on the whole correctly copied, and can be trusted. With this the usefulness of the work may be said to end. As a study of Coligny it has little value. It is amorphous, prints hundreds of pages of material - Often of questionable importance or easily accessible - which might have been given in as many lines. It is, moreover, laud'atory and blindly partisan.
