- [COTOLONDI (Charles)]. Arliquiniana ou les bons mots, les histoires plaisantes et agréables. Recueillies des conversations d'Arlequin. Suivant la copie, Paris, Florentin et Pierre Delaulne et Michel Brunet, 1694, in-32, frontispice, [56]-354-[12] p., demi-basane brune postérieure, dos lisse orné (traces d'usure, mors avant en partie fendu, coiffe supér. arasée, petit manque au titre). First Edition. Witticisms and anecdotes of Domenico Biancollelli (1640-1688), who brought the Commedia dell'Arte and its most famous character, Arlecchino, to Paris in 1662. He dominated the role in France, endowing the character with even greater wit, and became a personal favourite of Louis XIV. It was Biancollelli who earned for the Italian acting troupe the right to perform in French rather than in Italian.
