Oeuvres de Maitre François Rabelais. Vol. II
De Beer Lb 1725 R
Amsterdam: Henri Bordesius
‘The Two-horse Tumbrel of Salvation’; ‘The Codpiece of the Law’; ‘The Slippers or Pantofles of the Decretals’; ‘The Pomegranate of Vice’ are just a few of the titles Pantagruel finds in the library of St Victor in Paris. Others follow in Book II, Chapter VII, of François Rabelais’s (c.1490-1553) bawdy, grotesque, inventive, and ‘gigantic’ Gargantua and Pantagruel, which spewed forth from the pen of this doctor-monk between 1532 and 1564. The work was condemned by the Church and the faculty at the Sorbonne in Paris. Rabelais’s unique literary legacy is without peer.
