[FABRE d'ÉGLANTINE (Philippe)]. The Victims of Love, or Letter from Madame de ***, to her friend, her relative. By Mr. ***. Lyon, s.n., 1777. In-8 of [8]-20 pages, half red leather from Russia (19th century binding). The only edition cited by Gay, it is rare because it was obviously printed on an amateur press at the author's expense. Taken from a real Lyon news item, it is the misadventures of an adulterous woman who will see her lover pierced with a fatal blow. Good copy from the G. Manessier library (numbered stamp). (Gay III, 1330).
