Barbier I, col. 334; Cohen-De Ricci, col. 531; Ullrich, Robinson und Robinsonaden, pp. 223-224, no. 2. First edition of these Avantures de Don Antonio de Buffalis, revamped as the ?Italian Robinsonade?, on the education and travels of Antonio de Buffalis, a boy from an Italian family living in Milan, by the French writer Antoine de La Barre de Beaumarchais (died ca. 1757). Apart from travel accounts of journeys to Geneva and Venice, full of interesting details of the life in hotels including many more or less piquant stories of his encounters in these establishments, the book, like so many of the picaresque stories, includes also an excursion to Algiers. The book also provides us with information on the habits and traditions of the Moor people. From the library of the counts of Erbach (Germany) with four library stamps; manuscript dedications in pencil on rectos of first flyleaves; lower part of spine gone. Good copy of this adventure book on an Italian Robinson.
