Among these new vessels the Saint-Philippe, built in 1693 by Francois Coulomb at Toulon, would have an especially rich career, under the command of illustrious offi cers. She was especially noteworthy at the battle of Velez-Malaga in 1704 under the command of the Chevalier d’Infreville but this campaign would be her last.

The rare nature of studies dedicated to Louis XIV’s navy, the prestige surrounding the vessel under study, the abundance of pictorial information and the rich nature of the numerous commentaries makes this monograph a matchless trove.
