Published 10 May 1840 in conjunction with la Societe des Bibliophiles Francais, printed by Crapelet, and sold at Silvestre, Rue des Bon-Enfants, Paris. This is a facsimile printing of a work by the French poet and author, Jean (or Jehan) d'Abundance, originally published in the 16th Century.

Spine is sun faded (though in an attractive manner). A beautiful little book, with blue title pages and the facsimile faithfully reproduced with varying page widths as issued, and wonderful woodcuts.
