About This Item

(Bruxelles): (J. Gay). Near Fine. 1860. Limited Edition. Paperback. 139 pages; Réimpression faite à Bruxelles, par J. Gay, 1860, avec une notice bibliographique de P. Lacroix. [Catalogue de la bibliothèque de M. Emile Desmazières] Reimpression faite a 200 exemplaires sur papier de Hollande. No. 63 [of 200] Original plain blue-green wrappers in glassine jacket. Very Good+ This nicely produced reissue of this satirical exposition of the 'privileges' of cuckoldry takes the form of lengthy dialogue between Le Cocu and Le Jaloux. OCLC 1063428053 "THE BENEFITS AND PRIVILEGES OF CUCKOLDS, Shewing the little Disgrace there is in being one, and the Obligations Men sometimes have to their Wives, for conferring that Honour upon them, in what Manner soever it is done, either as Prudes, Coquettes, Domines, or Writing Desks. The whole beautifully illustrated with several late notable Intrigues that have been carried on in many Parts of the Beau-monde." The purported author: Eustache Le Noble (1643 – 1711) was a 17th-century French playwright and writer. An attorney General at the Parlement of Metz, Le Noble led a dissipated life and after he had been condemned for having manufactured false acts, he was jailed at the Conciergerie where he fell in love with Gabrielle Perreau, la Belle Épicière, who was also imprisoned. Having found a way to get away with her, in order to make a living, he published satirical dialogues about the time topics, in which Bayle found "infinite wit and reading." The prose is clear, incisive, and frequently cut with verses which are not without merit. .
