About This Item

Paris: Chez Desaint & Saillant/Durant, 1756. First Edition. 8vo, pp. viii, 184,(2). Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of the author and 10 engraved plates by Chedel. Engraved vignette on title, headpiece, & 10 engraved tailpieces. Bound in orignal uncut marbled wrappers (lacks the paper on the spine). Swedish bookplate on front endpaper. A fine, untrimmed copy. Housed in a custom cloth clamshell case. Sabin 21007; Cioranescu 25467; JCB 1112; Cohen-De Ricci 328. An epic poem of the discovery of America. The plates show mostly encounters of Europeans and Indians in the new world and draw a picture of the encounter between the conqueror and the conquered. The work reflects the ideas popularized by Voltaire and Rousseau of the `noble savage.' DuBoccage was educated at an exclusive Parisian convent, married poet and translator Pierre Joseph Fiquet du Boccage and established a salon frequented by Voltaire and others. She was the author of the tragedy Les Amazones and an imitation of Milton's Paradise Lost.
