8°, circa 16,5 x 9,8 cm., Title in red, 150 pp.. Contemporary marbled boards Cf. Gay III, 138 and Barbier 4296 (Amsterdam edition of the same year). One of several editions in the same year of this curious erotic novel. The author indirectly admits in the preface that he chose the name of his heroine to attract attention, probably because of the memoirs of Claude Alexandre Bonneval that came out the same year. The present novel has otherwise nothing to do with Turkey but is mostly situated in the Palais Royal in Paris. From page 124 onwards there is an appendix with the title "L'art d'allonger un livre sans le rendre ennuyeux".


- Some browning, little spotting, otherwise fine.
