About This Item

Navarre Society, 1921. Hardcover. Fine. "Rip-roaring and rib-tickling, Franois Rabelais's irreverent story of the giant Gargantua, his giant son Pantagruel, and their companion Panurge is a classic of the written word. This great comic narrative, written in hugely popular installments over more than two decades, was unsparingly satirical of scholarly pomposity and the many abuses of religious, legal, and political power. The books were condemned at various times by the Sorbonne and narrowly escaped being banned. Behind Rabelais's obvious pleasure in lampooning effete erudition and the excesses of society is the humanist's genuine love of knowledge and belief in the basic goodness of human nature. The bawdy wit and uninhibited zest for life that characterize his unlikely trio of travelers have delighted readers and inspired other writers ever since the exploits of Gargantua and Pantagruel first appeared." [Pub. Info] This book was privately printed in London. Both volumes are in Fine condition. The 1st volume has 462 pages; the 2nd volume has 474 pages. There are no dust jackets. [Please check shipping costs for larger format books and multi-volume sets.] DELUXE EDITION.
