This is an original 1876 two-page black and white wood engraving (two single-sided pages) of the Lit de Justice or Bed of Justice held by King Louis XVI at Versailles in 1776, one year after his coronation. It was during his reign that the very last Bed of Justice was held, as the order of the French monarchs became obsolete as the French parliament gained in power. The second image in this set includes the floor plan and a seating chart of those present during this meeting.

Please note that there is a circular blind emboss mark in the lower right margin of the item.
