Another late clandestine publication, on this occasion complete, but the down side is that I cannot identify who published the book or who the rather good illustrator is, so if anyone has any information please step forward. Because of requests regarding the physical presentation of books on this blog, I have given samples of the text and left the illustrations full page, including borders.
Viau, Théophile de. Le Parnasse satirique.
Printed for a group of bibliophiles 1950. In-8. 125 pages with 16 illustrations on boards. In sheets, shirt, case. One of the 500 numbered copies. The clandestine edition of these grivois verses, for which this author was prosecuted and exiled in the 17th century. This copy, printed for a group of bibliophiles, contains an introduction to the author, a facsimile banning order of the court. Printed in red and black on cream paper. Apart from two erotic vignettes, the work was decorated with erotic illustrations of quality, very free, in the atmosphere of the time.
