Antier, Benjamin - L'Auberge Des Adrets. Robert Macaire

France, Roissard Grenoble, 1966. Numbered. Wraps. #195 of 974 copies. Printed wraps housed in a brown clothbound folder and matching slipcase. Quarto. 265 pp. Black and white illustrated plates by Travies, Daumier and Gavarni. All text in French. A printing of two 19th century plays featuring the fictional character Robert Macaire. Originally written as a character in a melodrama in the play L'Auberge des Adrets, the character of Macaire was transformed by the actor playing him into an archetypical con man that represented scandals in government, politics and high society in France. Due to the scandalous nature of the character, it was banned from being used in plays in 19th century France, with people charged with crimes for its portrayal (see Wikipedia). VERY GOOD book and slipcase. Minor foxing to the spine of the book. Minor toning. Minor soiling, staining and scuffing to the slipcase and folder. Very Good .
