Les Amours de Zeokinizul, roi des Kofirans. Ouvrage traduit de l'arabe du voyageur Krinelbol.
Au dépens de Michel 1748 - title printed in red and black, engraved vignette on title, pp. 122, small 8vo, romantique binding of reddish-brown straight-grained morocco by Ducastin (signed towards foot of spine), intricate blind and gilt roll tooled borders on sides, large central gilt plaque, spine gilt in compartments, gilt edges, minuscule embossed circular armorial bookplate of a member of the Ashburnham family, very good. A scarce satire on Louis XV and Mme. de Pompadour, first published in 1746. Authorship from Tchemerzine IV, 193. Also attributed to Mme. de Vieuxmaisons, Cioranescu, Dix-huitième siècle, I, 21748; and to L.A. de la Beaumelle, Querard II, 454. Some copies (e.g. Bodley) have 4 pages at the end in which the chracters are identified: here they are identified in a contemporary, or near contemporary, hand in pencil in the margins, some of these a little cropped. Ramsden records a 'long line' of binders of this name, this probably being the work of the Père.
