1931, ANDRE MAUROIS, SIGNED, LYAUTEY, 1/204 Copies, First Edition


André Maurois (born Émile Salomon Wilhelm Herzog, 1885 – 1967) was a French author. A close friend and great admirer of Marshal Lyautey, he devoted a beautiful biography in 1931 to the man he nicknamed France’s first colonial soldier, which is still an authoritative work today.

Louis Hubert Gonzalve Lyautey (1854 – 1934) was a French Army general and colonial administrator. After serving in Indochina and Madagascar, he became the first French Resident-General in Morocco from 1912 to 1925. Early in 1917 he served briefly as Minister of War. From 1921 he was a Marshal of France. He was dubbed the French empire builder, and in 1931 made the cover of Time.
