Illustrated titlepage printed in red and green in each vol. Original decorative blue boards lettered in gilt, tips of corners rubbed and edges a touch bumped; top edge of the pages gilt. A VG+ set. The translation is from the authentic text of M. Le Roux de Lincy and was first issued by the Society of English Bibliophilists in 1894. The Heptameron spotlights the minds and passions of the nobility of sixteenth century France. In the early 1500s five men and five women find themselves trapped by floods and compelled to take refuge in an abbey high in the Pyrenees. When told they must wait days for a bridge to be repaired, they are inspired - by recalling Boccaccio's Decameron - to commune in a cultured manner by telling stories. However, before too long, the stories degenerate into a verbal battle between the sexes, as the characters weave tales of corrupt friars, adulterous noblemen and deceitful wives.
