CAMPISTRON, JEAN GALBERT DE. - Oeuvres choisies. Édition stéréotype, d'après le procédé de Firmin Didot.

Paris: De l'Imprimerie et de la Fonderie Stéréotypes de P. Didot l'ainé, et de Firmin Didot, 1810. 18mo. xiv, 198, [2]p. Red cloth, leather-backed. Small dent in rear cover, otherwise in very good condition. Between 1683 and 1709 Campistron turned out 9 tragedies, 2 comedies and, in collaboration with Lully, 3 'tragédies en musique'. To a certain extent Campistron was an imitator of Corneille and Racine, but not so much as to accuse him of lack of originality. Some of his tragedies are heroic and patriotic; others pyschological and pathetic. The conflict of generations and the fatal destructiveness of incestuous love are recurrent themes.
