RABELAIS (François). OEuvres de Maitre François Rabelais publiés sous le titre de Faits et dits du Géant Gargantua et de son fils Pantagruel... A Amsterdam, chez H. Desbordes, 1711. 6 tomes in 5 volumes in-12, brown pastiche basane, 5-rib spine, fawn titles, ornate caissons, date stamped on tail, triple gilt fillet framing the boards, gilt roulette on the edges, red tanches (one tail cap gross. replaced, binding rubbed, light freckling, stains on pl. I, front. short margin, cracks repaired on map). First critical and annotated edition of Rabelais, edited by Le Duchat. The copper-engraved hors-texte illustrations include a title-frontispiece and a portrait of Rabelais by W. de Broen, a copper-engraved vignette of the dedicatee's coat of arms and 4 fold-out plates (3 views of La Devinière and Carte du Chinonois), all in volume 1. As is often the case, volumes 5 and 6 are bound in one volume. Some blank leaves reported by Cohen are not present. The collation of this copy differs from that given by Plan, although it features the signed portrait and frontispiece identifying the original edition, and the date 1711 on each title page. For volumes 2, 3 and 4, it contains paginated prologues in Roman numerals not indicated by Plan: T.1. Collation conforms. - T.2. [1] f. (title), VIII p. (Prologue), 287 p., [2] f. (table). - T.3. [1] f. (title), XIX p. (prologue), 272 p., [2] f. (table). - T.4. [1] f. (title), LV p. (prologues), 288 p., [2] f. - T.5. Conformal collation. - T.6. [2] f. (blank, title), 109 p., [16] f.
