Description: Paris, A Minutie. 1770, First Edition. Hardcover, 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Includes bookplate of Princesse Jean Callimachi. 2 Volumes bound in one, full leather with marbled end papers. French text. Predates the illustrated 1744 edition. Charles Pinot (or Pineau) Duclos (12 February 1704 - 26 March 1772) was a French author and contributor to the Encyclopédie ou Dictionnaire raisonné des sciences, des arts et des métiers. Duclos was born at Dinan in Brittany and studied at Paris. After some time spent in dissipation he began to cultivate the society of wits and joined a club of young men who published their literary efforts under such titles as Recueil de ces messieurs, Étrennes de la saint Jean, ufs de Pâques etc. His romance Acajou et Zirphile was the result of a wager among the club's members: Duclos composed it for a series of engraved plates intended for another work. He wrote two other romances which were favorably received: The Baroness de Luz (1741) and Confessions of Count de (1747). Good.
