Iournal de Monsieur le cardinal duc de Richelieu: qu'il a faict durant le grand orage de la cour en l'année 1630 & 1631 tiré des memoires écrits de sa main ; avec diverses autres pieces remarquables , qui sont arrivées en son temps.
Author: Armand Jean du Plessis Richelieu
Place: The text itself provides no clues as to the place of printing, but one can infer based on the Cardinal's other major publications that the place would have been Paris, possibly the Galleries at the Louvre where the King's Printers typically produced royal documents and publications.
Publisher: The text also does not provide any clues as to who printer or published this edition of Richelieu's journal. However, there is significant evidence that points to Sébastien Cramoisy (1584 - 1669) as the possible printer and bookseller, as he published many of Cardinal Richelieu's works beginning in 1614. It is worth noting that even if Cramoisy did publish this volume, his printer's device is nowhere to be found so he (or whomever the printer was) may have been asked to print this book anonymously.
