engraved frontis'; OCLC Number: 968499950. French revolutionary calendar date is A N IX [1801]. This calendar was restored after a brief period to the Gregorian calendar commonly in use. The Gregorian date is found by counting forward from the founding of the French Republisc in 1792- hence AN IX is 1801. In 1758 Marmontel gained the patronage of Madame de Pompadour, who obtained for him a place as a civil servant, and the management of the official journal Le Mercure, in which he had already begun the famous series of Contes moraux. The merit of these tales lies partly in the delicate finish of the style, but mainly in the graphic and charming pictures of French society under King Louis XV. Bound in full patterned calf leather with bright gilding on spines. .
