1 Illustrations by Adrien Baggary. Stories by Denis Diderot, Le Comte de Caylus, Le Cardinal de Bernis, Le Chevalier de Boufflers, Jacques Cazotte, Voltaire, Charles Pigault-Lebrun, etc. Florilege des Conteurs Galants du XVIIIieme Siecle (Two Volumes)
Paris 1931, 1932 Limited First Edition Half Morocco over Marbled Paper Very Good 
No. 351 of 600, with total issuance in various forms of 3,416 copies. This set was issued with papier pur fil Lafuma. With 24 color plates and 40 black and white illustrated plates in the two volumes. Bound attractively with decorated morocco, with various curly-cue gilt ornamentation. The set epitomizes the inter-war French vogue for soft core erotica, here with literary pretensions or pedigree from the eighteenth century, that hotbed of erotic gamboling before squelched by the Revolution. Some spotting on the fore-edges. Rubbing on the spine extremities and the edges. Overall a handsome set.
