)Poetry. Third edition, revised, corrected and expanded.
Paris : Théophile Grandin, 1822. - In-18, paperback.
Third edition, partly original, containing 16 new poems. It is illustrated with a title-frontispiece and 4 plates engraved by Coupé, Lefebvre and Godefroy after compositions by Chasselat.

" offered to Mr. Coignet // in recognition of his // charming verses. // Marceline Desb. Valmore // bordeaux. 20 june // 1823"
This is undoubtedly the poet from Lyon, Étienne-François Coignet (1798-1866), librarian of the city of Saint-Chamond, who was a friend of Paul-Émile Prudhon, Marceline's godfather
