About this Item: Privately Printed for Rarity Press, Inc., New York, 1932. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. W. Heath Robinson (illustrator). Dark pink cloth binding with small silver outline of nude on front cover, PO FFEP, end papers split but still solid, very little toning, last few pages uncut. Spine fading but quite readable, very little shelf wear. Volumes I and II. 35 incredible full page B & W illustrations by W. Heath Robinson plus many small illustrations often between chapters. Although not much is known about Rabelais, his rollicking and uninhibited tale of the giant Gargantua and his son leaves us with the impression that he was a man of keen satiric wit and a tremendous enthusiasm for life. In 1597, all 5 books were published together for the first time. Seller Inventory # 000566

About this Item: Lippincott. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Two volumes. No publishing date but look as if printed in the second decade of the 20th century. Top edges gilt.

Some foxing on flyleaves. Former owner's name and address inside front cover in volume one, name only in volume two. Interiors otherwise unmarked.

About this Item: London - Alexander Moring Limited, 1918. Hardcover. Condition: GOOD ONLY. An illustrated set of Rabelais novelswith a black and white plate to frontispiece of each volume and numerous woodcut illustrations throughout by W. Heath Robinson, who was an English cartoonist and illustrator, best known for drawings of eccentric machines. In two volumes complete. Franois Rabelais (c. 1494- 9 April 1553) was a major French Renaissance writer, doctor, Renaissance humanist, monk and Greek scholar. He has historically been regarded as a writer of fantasy, satire, the grotesque, bawdy jokes and songs. His best known work is Gargantua and Pantagruel. The Life of Gargantua and of Pantagruel is a connected series of five novels written in the 16th century by Franois Rabelais. It is the story of two giants, a father (Gargantua) and his son (Pantagruel) and their adventures, written in an amusing, extravagant, satirical vein. The text features much crudity, scatological humour, and violence. Lists of explicit or vulgar insults fill several chapters. The censors of the Sorbonne stigmatised it as obscene, and in a social climate of increasing religious oppression, it was dealt with with suspicion, and contemporaries avoided mentioning itWith letters written by Francis Rabelais M.
