DU BELLAY, Joachim.
Various rustic games, and other poetic works. Paris, Fédéric Morel, 1558. In-4 (210 x 156 mm) of 76 ff.ch.; red morocco, triple gilt fillet framing, smooth spine decorated with long title, gilt edges (M. Godillot). Original edition, published the same year as Les Regrets, Les Antiquités de Rome, and the book of Latin Poemata. "A work of recreation, the title of which refers more to the lususus [banter] of the Neolithic poets than to any bucolic inspiration, the Divers jeux rustiques is a set of 'small pieces rather badly sewn': Cultivating the light lyricism of which Ronsard had given the example in the Livret de folastries and the Bocage of 1554, they are inspired by Virgil, Anacréon, Ovid, and Neolatine poets such as Navagero, Bembo and Sannazaro; they also borrow from Berni and Arétin the bite and verve of their anti-courtisan satires. "(artsrtlettres.ning.com). Good copy, delicately washed. Provenance: Jean-Paul Barbier (ex-libris). Tchemerzine-Scheler, III, 54; Adams is missing.
