Paris, Chez les marchands de nouveautés, au Palais Royal, 1826. In-18, half havane calf, small green vellum corners, smooth spine decorated with gilt fillets, chocolate morocco title page, marbled edges. [2 ff.], 159 pp. First edition. Violent pamphlet against the women of the high aristocracy, and a few prominent women in the society of the time. Among them, the Viscountess d'Arlincourt, wife of the frenzied author of Le Solitaire, the Duchesse de Broglie, daughter of Mme de Staël, Mme de Chastenay, Mme de Chateaubriand, the Duchesse de Dino, the Duchesse de Duras, Delphine Gay, Mme de Genlis, Mme Récamier and others. Angular loss to one leaf affecting two letters, freckles, binding rubbed. A piquant little work on the women of the Restoration.
