PIRON, Alexis (1689-1773). Poésies badines & facétieuses. Cythère [but Brussels]: Cupidon [Vital Puissant], 5000800605 [1865].

Duodecimo (158 x 107 mm). Half-title and title printed in red. 40 hand-coloured lithographs. (Light spotting in the bottom margin of some leaves.) Contemporary red calf, spine with raised bands and gilt in compartments, green morocco label titled in gilt, marbled edges (extremities lightly rubbed).

AN ATTRACTIVE EDITION WITH HAND-COLOURED LITHOGRAPHS of the great wit’s racy rhymes. This edition apparently not in the Bibliotheque nationale de France; the British Library copy lacks all the plates. AE and ABPC record only one copy at auction: the Bégis-Nordmann copy (sold, Christie’s Paris, 27 April 2006, lot 322). Dutel A-886.
