[André-Robert ANDREA DE NERCIAT]. La Matinée libertine, ou Les Momens bien employés. A Cythère, 1787. In-12, full lemon morocco with 5 nerves, double fillet on the edges, interior lace and gilt edges (Smeers binding). 144 pp. printed on watermarked tinted laid paper, 5 free unsigned figures, carefully hand-colored, perhaps later. Extremely rare first edition of this text. It is illustrated with 5 free figures, the first of which, most amusingly, shows that erotic lovemaking requires a sense of balance. "This work is generally, and probably rightly, attributed to the Chevalier de Nerciat. It is composed of very lively erotic dialogues of great crudity, in that direct, graceful and easy style which has made Nerciat's reputation" (Dict. des Œuvres érotiques). Spine browned, some light spotting. Cohen, 750; Gay III, 79; Pia, 888. Rare first edition of a work by Nerciat with very crude dialogue.
