Felicia, ou Mes Fredaines. La faute en est aux Dieux qui me firent si folle.
Amsterdam Four parts in Two Volumes 1780 - 12mo; [4],259; [4],294. The very valuable illustrated edition was published in the same year as this. The BL copy of the non-illustrated edition of 1780 has an engraved title page to part one, as has a copy which sold at auction in Amsterdam in 2013. However, that copy was paginated [2],208; [2],231. Therefore the present edition is possibly an unrecorded pirate edition. Contemporarily bound in fine French mottled calf, triple gilt ruled borders, minor rubbing extremeties and spine, the spine with gilt decoration and lettering direct. VG copy of this late 18thc pornographic novel. ***** AndrĂ©-Robert AndrĂ©a de Nerciat (17 April 1739 – 1800) was a French novelist, best known for his novel Le Diable au corps. Nerciat was born at Dijon, the son of a royal official in Burgundy. He retired from the military in 1775 and worked as a writer of plays, verse, light music and pornographic novels, while also serving as a secret agent of the French government across Europe. He may also have worked as a double agent, as he was arrested by the French when they invaded Naples in 1798. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
