[Manuscript]. [Curiosa]. [Song]. Manuscript collection of light songs. Eighteenth century. In-8, contemporary tan calf, spine with 5 nerves, garnet colored title and greef, ornate caissons, marbled edges (worn binding, gaps in the spine, moderate scattered russets). Collection composed of 160 f. written on the r° and v°, then [3] f. of alphabetical table of titles. Some erasures; blanks have been left by the scribe, perhaps in anticipation of illustrations. The volume offers songs for drinking and dancing, light and even saucy songs; some songs are reduced to a couplet, others cover several pages; some of them refer to famous people whose names are revealed in the margin. Excerpts: "La Belle Hélène du bas du pont / a de la leine autour du con / sy elle m'ayme je l'aime aussy / j'en ay de mesme autour du vit". (fol.71 r°). And: "Ho que j'ayme le cul / ho que j'ayme le curé de nos village / Il est d'humeur gaillarde / Il ayme le jambon / et moy j'ayme le con / tentement de Manon [...]". (fol.66 r°).
