[Eunuchs] (Ch. Ancillon). Traité des Eunuques,

dans lequel on explique toutes les différentes sortes d'eunuques, quel rang ils ont tenu, & quel cas on en a fait, &c. On éxamine principalement s'ils sont propres au mariage, & s'il leur doit être permis de se marier. Et l'on fait plusiers remarques curieuses & divertissantes à l'occasion des eunuques, &c. Par M***, D*** (Charles Ancillon). N,pl., (the Netherlands), 1707, (20),187 pp., finely bound in black half mor. by R. de Simier (modestly giltlettered signed at foot of spine), gilt and ribbed spine, 12mo (in 8vo size).

A desirable copy of the rare original edition. The skilled binder managed to keep the bookblock uncut as published, thus with the largest blank outer margins possible. The preface is signed C. d'Ollincan, which is an anagram of the author's name. Barbier III, 779; Cf. Gay/ Lemonnyer III, 1239. Curious and interesting work on eunuchs.
