A Londres. Se vend à Marseille: Chez Jean Mossy, 1786. xvi,184pp. Contemporary calf and boards, spine gilt extra. Light scattered foxing and occasional mild spotting, a few rubs and light stains to boards, otherwise a very good copy. First edition of this substantial collection of verse, epigrams, translations, and letters in verse. The identity of the author seems only thinly veiled at first glance, but the screen has been sufficiently impenetrable that authorship for the copies in the BM Lyon and BL remains unattributed, and Barbier comes up short. The London aspect of the imprint is curious, as it is an entirely French production, but may just possibly point to a French national posted to London in some business or governmental capacity. The dedication of the collection is to M. Deprats, who is also identified as the recipient of several of the letters in verse.
