Author: Gilles Menage
Publisher: Pierre de Coup, Amsterdam
Condition: Very Good
An early 18th century edition Gilles Ménage’s popular "Menagiana", his collection of witty table talk and critical observations, first published posthumously by his friends in 1692. From the varied and cursive information which it embodies, and the happy mixture of wit, humour, and comic narrative, with the graver elements of criticism, reasoning and antiquarian research, this work found quick favor and popularity with the revised and collected edition by French poet Bernard de la Monnoye. Volume 2-4 of the 4 volume set, with Volume 1 lacking.
Three vellum bound volumes in 12mo, 462+599+446+54 unnumbered pages
On note of condition, these volumes are in very good shape, with minor wear at the corners. There is little to no foxing present.
