Publisher's Summary

Vremya zakata "galantnogo veka" oznamenovalos' nebyvaloy pyshnost'yu korolevskih dvorov i razmahom vsevozmozhnyh prazdnikov i razvlecheniy. Ehta zhe ehpoha porodila i osobuyu porodu lyudey - avantyuristov, kolesivshih po vsey Evrope v poiskah priklyucheniy, legkoy nazhivy i eshche ne ispytannyh udovol'stviy. Ne imeya bol'shogo sostoyaniya, ehti lyudi uspeshno pronikali v samye vysshie sloi obshchestva isklyuchitel'no blagodarya lichnym kachestvam: ostroumiyu, pronicatel'nosti i otvage, podkreplennoy veroy v udachu.

Kazanova -izvestnyy ital'yanskiy avantyurist, puteshestvennik i pisatel', avtor obstoyatel'noy avtobiografii "Istoriya moey zhizni" (fr. Histoire de ma vie). Blagodarya ehtoy knige on nastol'ko proslavilsya svoimi mnogochislennymi lyubovnymi pohozhdeniyami, chto samo ego imya stalo naricatel'nym i ispol'zuetsya teper' v znachenii "zhenskiy obol'stitel'".

Esli verit' ego memuaram, Kazanova vstrechalsya s evropeyskimi monarhami, papami, kardinalami i takimi vydayushchimisya deyatelyami ehpohi Prosveshcheniya, kak Vol'ter, Mocart i Gyote. Svoi poslednie gody on provyol v Bogemii, buduchi smotritelem biblioteki v zamke grafa Val'dshteyna; imenno tam on i napisal istoriyu svoey zhizni.
