Des contes libertins (Libertine Tales) as a text is nothing particularly exciting, bringing together a collection of well-known risqué eighteenth century stories by Alexis Piron, l’Abbaye de Grécourt, le Sieur Vergier and François-Felix Nogaret. However, the ten hand-coloured drawings accompanying this privately-published edition have a certain rustic charm.

Des contes libertins was published in a limited numbered edition of 245 copies.
