Martial d'Auvergne & Benoit de Cour - Les arrests d'amours avec l'amant rendu Cordelier - 1731
Literatuur, Recht - Aantal: 1 - Boek

Last old edition with a nice title vignette of this famous book that tends to mock, with a lot of wit, the ridiculousness of gallant life.

Imitating the satirical love songs of 13th-century poets, it sets a judicial court, the Parliament of Love, which ultimately and irrevocably judges all love-related cases, the realism of details and humour of which will be highly appreciated.

These cases are a French parody of the legal language, that the author, a prosecutor in Parliament, wrote around 1460.
Each one of them is a case of casuistic love, and debates are held before Prévost de Deuil, Bailli de Joie, Viguier d'Amour.
Thus a convicted lady must give a kiss or such gentleman is condemned to "estre dépouillé tout d'étuves".
