An exceptional set of the Œuvres de Dorat, made up of works published separately (between 1770 and 1790) and united in 4 octavo volumes.

In our copy, the first volume consists of two volumes of the “Œuvres mêlées”, dated 1792. The second contains "La Déclamation théâtrale" (fourth edition, Delalain, 1771) and "Mes Fantaisies" (third edition, the same publisher as above, 1770). "Les Baisers" followed by "Recueil de Contes et de poèmes" (fourth edition) and "Lettres d'une Chanoinesse de Lisbonne à Melcour" complete the third volume, published by Delalain in 1770, 1776 and 1780 respectively. For the fourth volume: “Mes Nouveaux Torts, ou Nouveau Mélange de Poésies, pour servir de suite aux Fantaisies” (published by Monory in 1767), followed by “Les Victimes de l'Amour” (Delalain, 1790) and “Mélanges poétiques et Littéraires”.

Everything is superbly illustrated with engraved half-title pages, headbands, initials, culs-de-lampe and out of text plates after Eisen and Marillier (curiosa) made up as follows:
