Description:
Edinburgh: William Blackwood and sons, 1898 In 8s (171 x 111 mm): Pp [i-viii], [1] 2-176. Publisher's slate-blue cloth lettered and decorated in black, plain wove endpapers, no headbands, all edges trimmed & plain. Free endpapers somewhat browned, spine sunned, withal A REMARKABLY FINE COPY. *** Last edition; comprising 'a biographical sketch of La Fontaine followed by a commentary on his fables with an emphasis upon stylistic considerations. Short background discussions of earlier fabulists and the Reynard cycle and brief mention of later fabulists and La Fontaine's influence upon them.' (Carnes 210n.) The first edition was published at Edinburgh by Blackwood in 1882; and an American issue or edition appeared at Philadelphia in the same year. The present edition is remarkably scarce, perhaps on account of its having been used as a schoolbook: Only two other copies have been located, and none in America. -- References: OCLC 11802681.

Description:
Paris: Librairie Vanier, 1885   ¶ FIRST EDITION, and in fact the only separate edition, of Verlaine's sketch of François Coppée; enlivened by a striking caricature of the poet holding a red rose and toting a wagonload of hearts across the Place de l'Odéon--where his comedy Le passant had given Sarah Bernhardt her first triumph.   ¶ Coppée was a leading poet and dramatist of the 1870s and '80s, and the progenitor of Les Vilains Bonshommes ("The Nasty Boys")--a group of younger Parnassians whose monthly dinners were celebrated, famously, by Fantin-Latour in his large canvas Coin de table, now in the Musée d'Orsay. (It was at one such dinner, in 1871, that Rimbaud made his Paris debut. The Nasty Boys were not amused.) Coppée is now remembered chiefly for his role in excluding Mallarmé and Verlaine and Charles Cros from the third volume of Le Parnasse contemporain 1876. (Series: Les hommes d'aujourd'hui,… Read more
