Description:
Paris: C. Motteroz (Paris), for Isidore Liseux, 1879     ¶ BEST EDITION, only issue, of this celebrated trove of sixteenth-century manners and customs, compiled ostensibly to buttress the credibility of Herodotus but with a mind as well to satirizing modern institutions, not least the Roman Catholic Church. "Voici enfin une édition digne du grand libre-penseur du XVIe siècle: nous aimons à croire qu'elle sera considérée par tour les lettrés délicats comme l' ÉDITION DÉFINITIVE." (Brunet / Deschamps.)  Chapter 13, we notice, is devoted to sodomy and le 'péché contre nature', with remarks as well on transvestites and 'tribades' (i.178): The latter is said to be the earliest occurrence of the word tribade in French, preceding its appearance in English by some thirty-five years. A lovely set.   ||| Collation: Two volumes in 4s (196 ×… Read More

In: Historia (Paris, 1955-  ) no. 242 (January 1967), pages 120-31     ¶ ONLY EDITION: This is the original magazine whose cover inspired the American artist Jim Dine to embark on his extraordinary series of nine Rimbaud portraits 1971-73, now very scarce and highly prized. In an interview with Thomas Krens (1976), Dine recalled that he had been "impressed by Rimbaud first as a still life. The Rimbaud series began several years ago when I found a French popular history magazine in a bookstall on the quai in Paris. The cover of the magazine had a portrait of Rimbaud, probably by some nineteenth-century academician [but in fact after Carjat 1871/2], and I was attracted by the way the face looked, physically. Seeing his face in a bookstall on the Seine--it just struck me how interested I was, how much he looked like a young boy, how amazing his face was. I then read his poems, and about his life, and that really fascinated me, but it was his face that I was… Read More
