THE FOUNDING WORK OF ROMAN PHILOLOGY. While Jean-Baptiste de La Curne de Sainte-Palaye was a significant precursor of this science, François-Just-Marie Raynouard was its true initiator. The present anthology brings together almost exclusively verse pieces in a thematic classification (erotic, historical, etc.), with a few prose texts including the famous Strasbourg oath (842). It is accompanied by important speeches by the philologist on the origins and grammar of the Oc and Oïl languages, on troubadours and trouvères, with biographical notes on various authors, and a comparative study of Romance languages. SUPERB BINDING SIGNED BY MOTET, successor to François Bozérian dit le jeune.
