FURETIÈRE (Antoine).
Dictionnaire universel contenant généralement tous les mots françois tant vieux que modernes Et les Termes de toutes les Sciences & des Arts. La Haye et Rotterdam, Arnout et Reinier Leers, 1691. 2 volumes in-folio, brown calf, ornate spine, red and green parts, red speckled edges (period binding). Frontispiece portrait of Furetière. Antoine Furetière (1619-1688), churchman, poet, fabulist, novelist and lexicographer, published numerous novels, fables and poems, which earned him admission to the Académie française in 1662. His battle against the Académie française led to his expulsion on January 22, 1685, following a resounding trial. He died before having the satisfaction of seeing his Dictionnaire published. This work, first published posthumously in 1690, has been considered a major work ever since. Joints restored.
