HIC-ET-HEC ou L'Elève des RR.PP. Jésuites d'Avignon. Orné de Figures. Berlin, 1798. 2 volumes in-18, half-maroquin with lavaliered corners, 5-rib spine with gilt title and tomaison, untrimmed, ex-libris. 147 pp. (incorrectly numbered 146), 137 pp. 4 (of 5?) free contemporary colored figures. First edition. This highly licentious book was long attributed to Mirabeau. This edition is, according to Pia, the most complete. Starting on p. 48 of volume 2, it contains an anecdote entitled "Les chevaux neufs", which is missing from other editions. Minor rubbing to covers and corners, scattered foxing. Gay II, 479, for 4 figures; Pia, 613, for 5. A very rare volume from the library of Gérard Nordmann (Sale II, 255).
