Francois Rabelais (1494?-1553) was a French humorist and satirist of the first rank. He became a monk, studied medicine, and traveled widely in France and Italy. Is most famous for his two novels, published under his pseudonym Alcofrias Nasier (an anagram) PANTAGRUEL (1533) and GARGANTUA (1535), both noted for their broad and racy humor and grotesque invention. The introduction to the set by Alfred Wallis in volume one covers the translations of Rabelais' works, especially Sir Thomas Urquhart, and his influence on English writers during the 17th and 18th centuries. The illustrations are reproductions in photogravure of those engraved for the Amsterdam edition of 1741. Bookseller Inventory # 10654
