Description:
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.

Description:
Aix-en-Provence: H. Gaudibert, 1829 *** ONLY EDITION; CONTAINING NINETY-EIGHT FABLES IN PROVENCAL (OCCITAN) VERSE glossed in French, together with a verse prologue celebrating La Fontaine and a long introductory essay in French on the Provencal language. The latter was written originally for an etymological dictionary whose publication had been delayed and which was, in fact, never published. ONE OF ONLY 200 COPIES, printed for friends of the author and fans of 'lo gai saber'--ie, the Troubadour aesthetic. (The allusion here is to the Consistori del Gai Saber, a literary school or circle established at Toulouse in 1323, which codified Troubadour versification and fostered Troubadour-revival poetry slams.) -- Known for his numerous and charming poems and songs, the author was born at Eguilles, a commune about six miles northwest of Aix, on 19 September 1771. He taught for some years at Eguilles, and then married the owner of a silkworm-farm at Rognes. He moved afterwards to Aix, where he served as the… Read more

Paris: Librairie Vanier, 1893   ¶ FIRST EDITION, and indeed the only separate edition, of Verlaine's biographical sketch of Francis Poictevin, a minor Symbolist writer. Verlaine's work is enlivened here by Luque's punning caricature of Poictevin as a corkscrew. The artist's most famous work was his caricature of Rimbaud coloring the vowels 1888 (Dillon no. H000335). (Series: Les hommes d'aujourd'hui, no. 424.) ||| Collation: 292 x 202 mm: Two leaves, paginated [1-4] (ie, not paginated).  Illustration: Wood-engraved portrait 201 x 149 mm after Manuel Luque (b. 1854), signed "M Luque" in a stylized pallette in the block lower left, printed in black and HAND-COLORED au pochoir, AS ISSUED.  Binding: (A bifolium loose as issued, never bound.)

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
