12mo. Woodcut device on title page and one woodcut in the text. 1 p.l., v, , 99,  pp. Early 19th-century quarter-calf over marbled boards, red morocco lettering piece on spine, spine gilt, title page trimmed close slightly affecting a few letters.The FIRST EDITION of the extremely rare fourth volume of Tricaud’s pièce fugitives, a compilation of various rare and curious literary passages. The current volume is of interest to the student of gastronomy as the largest chapter is concerned with the art of the table and is entitled "Sur l’ancien usage de se saluer à table & de s’exciter à boire." This fourth volume is particularly rare as it was immediately suppressed after publication (see Quérard, IX, 552-53 and Hain, Presse Périodique, 37). The first three parts were published separately one year earlier. OCLC records a location at the University of Wisconsin (Madison) only. Not in Bitting, Cagle, or Vicaire. Bookseller Inventory #
