François Rabelais; Jacob Le Duchat; Bernard de La Monnoye
|Notes:||Vol. 1 has an engraved t.p. with a portrait of the author.
Vols. 5 and 6 in one v.
Edited by Jacob Le Duchat and Bernard de La Monnoye.
Apparently a reprint of the original Bordesius ed. of 1711. The engraved t.p., signed "W. de Broen" in the original, is unsigned in the reprint; the plate with engraved portrait of Rabelais does not appear in the reprint and the coat of arms of Raby Wentworth, on page following t.p., is engraved on wood, instead of copper as in the original. The signatures of the reprint are in eights and fours, alternately and the pagination varies from that of the original in many instances. cf. Plan, Bibl. Rabelaisienne, and Brunet, Recherches bibl. et crit. sur les éditions de Rabelais.
