About this Item

Octavo, contemporary polished quarter sheep, edges and corners of covers worn, top of back hinge little chipped, bit rubbed, neat note on end-leaf, minor uniform embrowning, short clean tear to leaf X3 with no loss, with the half title and all 20 full-page plates by Gravelot, nice. The preface notes that Voltaire began writing this work in 1730. Pirated editions began appearing in 1755, and between 1755 and this 1762 edition, more than twenty pirated editions had appeared, attesting to the popularity of this sometimes risque epic. This edition is of major textual importance, for Voltaire had tired of the various piracies and inaccurate texts. He completely revised his early manuscript, adding five new cantos and rewriting the entire final canto. Then the fine, unsigned Gravelot plates appear for the first time in this edition, as do the important prefatory essay and the notes and commentary. Lewine 558. The first authorised edition.
