pp 36 Unrecorded imprint of this French manual for lovers, particularly addressing 'la Méthode et Adresse pour bien entretenir une Maîtresse'. Chapbook-style publication without imprint, dogearred throughout, almost closed tear to head of title page but complete as issued without binding or wrapper, though decorated along spine as if mimicking a binding. The garden of love was a popular topic in eighteenth century France and there are several near misses for this title held at the Bibliotheque Nationale with an imprint attributed to Jacques Antoine Lambert apparently closest - also held at Lyon - although Jean Baptiste Besongne appears to have used the same title earlier in the century and this imprint does describe itself as 'Derniere edition revue et augmentee' although this may be sales banter. At all events, a rare work in this form.
