About this Item

"Nouvelle Edition, sans faute & sans lacune . . . en dix-huit chants": An uncommon false imprint of Voltaire's best-selling, ribald burlesque on the importance of Joan of Arc's virginity ? an irreverent epic poem banned by the Roman Catholic Church in 1767. => WorldCat and ESTC do not locate any U.S. institutional holdings of this edition (another variant, printed in the same year, has 194 pages). Provenance: Front pastedown with bookplate of George Gropius ("und seinen Freunden"), front free endpaper with early pencilled inscription: "Lewis Tiger's Book." 16mo (10.6 cm, 4.2"). [2], 140 pp. (lacking frontis., pp. 127/28). ESTC T167805; Graesse 392; Brunet, V, 1362. Later marbled paper?covered boards, much rubbed and worn, paper lost over spine and back cover, back cover partially covered in cloth tape. Bookplate as above, front free endpaper with pencilled doodling along inner margin. Frontispiece and pp. 127/28 lacking. Sewing loosening. Occasional mild to moderate foxing; one page with light stain partially obscuring text without loss of sense. This is a book that was read (and read and read). . . . Bookseller Inventory # 30400
