[Nicolas-Edme RESTIF DE LA BRETONNE]. La Mimographe, ou Idées d'une honnête-femme pour la réformation du théâtre national. A Amsterdam, Chez Changuion, A La Haie, Chez Gosse & Pinet, 1770. 2 parts in one volume in-8, contemporary marbled calf, ornate ribbed spine, filleted edges, red edges. 466 pp. (continuous pagination). Missing false title and leaf A2. First and only edition (according to Restif himself, it was neither reprinted nor forged). After tackling prostitution, Restif, in this second volume of "Idées singulières", set about reforming theatrical mores. The first part is devoted to Restif's ideas on how to moralize theatrical mores. The notes in the second volume are invaluable for an insight into the interior of the stage, the theaters on Boulevard du Temple, actors and actresses, the necessary relocation of the Théâtre National to Paris, and more. Joints rubbed, small superficial epidermis on boards, browning in upper margin. Rives Childs, p. 215. Ex-libris Eug. D. Forgues with the motto "Faire sans dire".
