LA FONTAINE (J. de): Le Florentin, comedy. La Haye, A. Moetjens, 1702. Plaquette in-12 contemporary ivory vellum, blue morocco spine and band folder, edged slipcase. 32 pp. (tiny paper loss at bottom corner of title page). Extremely rare, especially in antique binding. Printed in France, not Holland. This is practically the original French edition, the "Pièces de théâtre" edition on which it was based being Dutch. (An Amsterdam edition, P. de Brun, 1699, is mentioned by M. Régnier in the "Collection des Grands Ecrivains de la France", but no one knows of it). It is also the first edition with separate pagination. The play was first performed on July 30, 1683. A fine copy, from the Jacques Dennery library, I, n°96.
