Memoirs of Madame Du Barry illustrated by William Russell Flint

The Anecdotes sur la Comtesse du Barry by Pidansat de Mairobert were first published in London in 1775, a year afterthe death of Louis XV. They enjoyed great success in Paris and at Versailles, where the ban against them merely increased public curiosity and eagerness to secure a copy. (Eveline Cruickshanks)
