About this Item: London - Gibbings and Company, 1903. Hardcover. Condition: VERY GOOD. An illustrated set of Rabelais novels with a black and white plate to frontispiece of each volume and numerous illustrations throughout. In three volumes complete. The museum edition with a decorative half title. Franois Rabelais (c. 1494 - 9 April 1553) was a major French Renaissance writer, doctor, Renaissance humanist, monk and Greek scholar. He has historically been regarded as a writer of fantasy, satire, the grotesque, bawdy jokes and songs. His best known work is Gargantua and Pantagruel. The Life of Gargantua and of Pantagruel is a connected series of five novels written in the 16th century by Franois Rabelais. It is the story of two giants, a father (Gargantua) and his son (Pantagruel) and their adventures, written in an amusing, extravagant, satirical vein. The text features much crudity, scatological humour, and violence. Lists of explicit or vulgar insults fill several chapters. The censors of the Sorbonne stigmatised it as obscene, and in a social climate of increasing religious oppression, it was dealt with with suspicion, and contemporaries avoided mentioning itWith a life and critical essay tofront of first volume. Condition: In quarter cloth bindings with paper covered boards. Externally, sound but with bumping and wear to extremities and slight marks to boards. Internally, binding slightly strained. With slight marginal age toning to pages but generally clean butwith the odd mark and foxing to endpapers only. Overall: VERY GOOD. Seller Inventory # 022729

About this Item: 1750. RABELAIS, Francois. The Works of Francis Rabelais, M.D. Formerly translated by Sir Thomas Urquart, M.D Since carefully revised, and compared throughout with M. le du Chat s edition, by Mr. Ozell. London: John Hart, 1750. Five volumes. 12mo, 19th-century full brown morocco, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $1850.Early edition of the first English translation of Rabelais, the first edition with the set of 28 copperplate engravings (24 folding), very handsomely bound."Though an English version of Gargantua was licensed in 1592, and was probably then issued, no translation of Rabelais is extant prior to Urquhart s of 1653 In point of style Urquhart was Rabelais incarnate, and in his employment of the verbal resources, whether of science and pseudo-science or slang, he almost surpassed Rabelais himself" (DNB). "This translation has been called one of the most perfect transfusions of an author from one language into another that ever man accomplished" (Pforzheimer 814). Rabelais "is often censured for his lapses into gross indecency and his physiological and medical obscenities. These may be explained partly as the work of an irrepressible jester writing for a coarse, outspoken society His work incensed the theologians and was condemned by the parlement. He issued a revised edition of the first two books, attenuating his insulting references to the theologians, but it failed to placate the Sorbonne and both books were again condemned Moliere drew on him, Voltaire and Balzac imitated him, but many have censured his obscenity" (Reid, 509-10). Bookplates, early owner signatures.Plates and text clean and fine, with only one tear along fold line to one plate (IV:135). Bindings very handsome. A desirable set of an esteemed translation.
