Rare and refined edition, which stands out from the others for being in only six books, instead of seven. Paul Scarron (1610–1660) was among the masters of Burlesque literature.
His unfinished masterpiece, Le Virgile travesty en vers burlesques, was first published in Paris by Quinet (later De Luyne) in 1648-53. It is a kind of parody of the Aneid, based on anachronisms, caricatured deformations, prosaic or licentious intrusions.
