Accompanied by personifications of France and the Genius of the House of Bourbon, Armand de Bourbon, the young prince of the family's Conty line, weds Minerva – Wisdom – who brings him the gift of the Sciences and the Arts. This allegorical tribute was the frontispiece of a doctoral thesis in philosophy that one René Pichon submitted to the Collège de Clermont at Paris in 1640. Students commissioned such thèses to solicit high patronage and advance. Huret, an imaginative designer and dazzling engraver, made a specialty of them.
