Pradon, (Jacques) Pirame, et Thisbé. Tragedie.

Paris: Henry Loyson, 1674. Edition originale of Pradon’s first play. Soleinne 1457; Tchemerzine IX, p. 211. 12mo. Full red morocco, ruled in gilt with highly gilt spine. Blue morocco doublures ruled and ornamented in gilt. Marble endpapers by Gruel. Jacques Pradon was a facile, popular playwright, the most prolific of his period who, unfortunately, confused popularity with genius. Believing his talent equal to that of Racine’s, he hurriedly put together a tragedy Phèdre et Hippolyte to compete with Racine’s Phèdre then just being staged for the first time in early January 1677. As a result of this direct challenge to Racine, Pradon became embroiled in a verbal brawl among critic and supporters that cost him his budding reputation.
