Georges Briffaut, Paris, 1930-1931 - 2 quarto volumes, paperback - 309 and 372 pages. 48 compositions by Joseph Hémard and coloured with stencil - 22.5 x 17 cm

Mint condition uncut. Edition of 1,842 copies. This is one of the 342 copies on Arches vellum numbered 341, simple casing in thin red paperboard

This book is divided into seven chapters, Brantôme called speeches, the title alone gives a pretty good idea of the content: Premier discours. « Sur les dames qui font l’amour et leurs maris cocus » ; Deuxième Discours : « Sur le sujet qui contente le plus en amour : le toucher, la vue ou la parole » ; Troisième Discours : « Sur la beauté de la belle jambe et la vertu qu’elle a » ; Quatrième Discours : « Sur l’amour des dames vieilles, et comme certaines l’aiment autant que les jeunes » ; Cinquième Discours : « Les belles et honnêtes dames aiment les hommes vaillants et les hommes braves aiment les femmes courageuses » ; Sixième Discours : « Il ne faut jamais parler mal des dames, et la conséquence qui en vient » ; Septième Discours : « Sur les femmes mariées, les veuves et les filles, à savoir lesquelles sont le plus chaudes à l’amour ». The earthiness of the illustrations of Joseph Hémard lends itself particularly well to the text of Brantôme.
