Description:
Paris: Librairie Vanier, 1886   ¶ FIRST EDITION of Verlaine's biographical sketch of Barbey d'Aurevilly, novelist and critic, the author of Les diaboliques (1874) and other light classics. Verlaine's essay is enlivened here by a wonderful full-page caricature of Barbey striking an imperious pose as he jabs his palm with his own pen, perhaps a hint of his extreme Catholicism. His foppish boots sprout needlelike spurs; and the names of his books spill out from a tipped bottle of 'encre du lion'. (The latter recalls the use of the word 'lion' in French as near-synonym for the word 'dandy', eg in Baudelaire "Le peintre de la vie moderne" ix: "Que ces hommes se fassent nommer raffinés, incroyables, beaux, lions ou dandies, tous sont issus d'une même origine". For this suggestion we are indebted to Mr David Cocksey of the University of Sheffield.)  (Series: Les hommes d'aujourd'hui, no. 282.)   ¶ It was Barbey, incidentally,… Read more

Chaumont (Haute-Marne): widow Bouchard, 1803     ¶  ONLY EDITION; comprising one hundred fables in French verse, chiefly original but one translated from Phaedrus; together with a charming dedication to the author's wife and a short verse Prologue and Epilogue. The text is arranged in five books of twenty fables each; and many of these have subtitles serving as promythia, eg "Le deux chenes; ou, L'orgueil puni" (The two oak-trees; or, Arrogance punished). A nice epigraph from Diderot adorns the titlepage: "Les Fables sont devenues la nourriture et les délices des esprits les plus délicats, le plus cultives, les plus profunds."  Of Bazinbois himself almost nothing is known. In 1787 he published a volume of Fables nouvelles . . . ; suivies d'un Traite sur la bienfaisance, under a (false) London imprint: Only one edition of this is known; and copies are preserved at Paris, Nancy, and Poitiers.
