Lutetiae (Paris): Abelis L'Angelier, 1587.
First Edition. Hardcover (Vellum). Very Good Condition. Item #044735
Later but likely 17th century half vellum over paste paper boards, some soiling and wear. Slight age toning, Durant penned to the second title, otherwise clean internally. 68, (2), blank; 148, (3), blank. Register of Erotic Books (the 1878 edition and the 1722 English translation).
When Bonnefons' Pancharis appeared it was hailed as the finest verse since Catullus (whose Baccia it is modeled on) - it was so popular that the imitations in French by Durant followed so quickly (and without noting the author) that it was long thought to be authored by Bonnefons as well. Very rare, just 6 copies in OCLC and 1 at auction over the last 30+ years. Both works with the privilege leaf and errata at the end. Size: duodecimo (12mo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Poetry; Erotica. Inventory No: 044735.
