Title: L'EsprIt des Amans ou Les Amours du Siecle. Almanach. OrnÚ de Jolies Gravures.
Description: A Paris, chez Janet successeur du R. Jubert, Rue S. Jacques, vis-a-vis Mathurins No. 36, [no date], [c. 1780]. 24mo, 93 x 58 mms., pp. 12, 24, engraved throughout, with engraved title-page, 12 engraved illustrations, one engraved plate of music (browned with engraving opposite also browned) "Le FossÚ de Cythere," attractively bound in contemporary full vellum with gilt borders to a floral motif, gilt floral ornament in centre of each board, embroidered spine (slightly worn), all edges gilt, contained in a (probably later) slipcase of marbled boards within plain boards. One of many libertine almanacs for lovers, with several bawdy French songs, and appropriate engraved illustrations only two of which hint at any indelicacy. A very attractive item. I have not found any other copy.
