FÉNELON, François de Salignac de La Mothe.
Les Avantures de Télémaque fils d'Ulysse. New edition, divided into ten books. Brussels, François Foppens, 1699. 2 volumes in 1 volume in-12 (157 x 92 mm) of 216 pp. for volume I; 227 pp. for volume II; red morocco, spine with decorated ribs, gilt edges (binding in the style of the period). "First edition with divided text and a summary at the head of each of the 10 books" (Tchemerzine), published in the year of the original. At least five 1699 editions of this book are known, and it was a great success from its first release in bookshops until the 20th century. Both a moral treatise for his royal pupils and an epic novel, this novel caused as much disgrace to Fénelon in the court as its immediate and later fame. Tchemerzine-Scheler, III, 202.
