Royal labyrinth of the triumphant Gallic Hercules on the subject of fortunes, battles, victories, trophies, triumphs, marriages, other heroism, memorable of Tres-Auguste Tres-Chrestien Prince Henry IIII, King of France, of Navarre. Represented with the triumphant entry of the Royne in the city of Avignon, on November 19 of the Year MDC or are contained the magnificences and triumphs drawn up with this effect by ladicte city. In Avignon, at Jacques Bramereau, 1600.
