"Eloge Of The Parasse : La Grande Confrairie"
There are in bibliophile beautiful and good books, beautifully connected, whose quality of printing does not yield in any way to the beauty of the text, even illustrations. And then, there are the rare plates, often printed under the coat with very small numbers, in a risky typography and which were often discarded as soon as they were finished reading and which have in fact become extremely rare and sought after, especially as they reveal more about an era than many official texts passed by the censure of the Church and the state ...
This booklet "The big confounders drunk to work and rabid to do nothing" was certainly printed at Jean Oursel's Rouen in 1735, saying "with permission", but the text is resolutely political, claiming the right to laziness in the form of allegories, then turns to tale with the description of a wonderful island where food grows alone and throws in the mouth, where clothes grow on trees, fountains make wines and music makes a year pass like a day. It is completed by two lists: value of gold and value of money in the Abbey and a three-year lease of a goat! Small plate in-12 (about 14 X 8 cm) 22 pages later bound in two sheets of paper, the whole having been gnawed back (not by a book rat!) Without harming the text. Do not hesitate to ask for photos or additional information by mail or phone.
