GUÉRIN DU ROCHER, PIERRE: - Histoire véritable des temps fabuleux. Qui contient l'histoire d'Egypt, depuis Ménès jusqu'a à sesostris, dévoilée par l'histoire-sainte, depuis Noé jusqu'a à l'entrée des Israélites en Egypte. Four volumes. Paris, Charles-Pierre Berton, & Liege, 1776-1779.

Pp. (iv), xl, 463; (iv), 598, (2); (iv), 643; (iv), 332. With one folding map. Attractive contemporary speckled calf, flat spines gilt with green title-labels, rubbed. Front hinge to volume one starting to crack. First edition of this controversial work. The author was a French Jesuit who tried to prove that all what was known about the Egyptians from Menès to the foundation of the Persian Empire was nothing but a violated extract from passages of the Scripture dealing with Egypt. Of course the work evoked a lively polemical discussion. Volume four contains Abbé Chapelle's defence of the authors' original views. Brunet vi, 1227. De Backer- Sommervogel iii, 1909. Ibrahim-Hilmy i, 279.
