DE MAISTRE, Xavier. Expédition Nocturne autour de ma Chambre. Édition présentéen par Michel Covin, illustrations de G. Staal. N.pl.: Le Castor Astral,(1990). Pp [1]-102,(2). Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated cream card covers, F rench flaps. "Xavier de Maistre (1763-1852) of Savoy (at the time, a regionof the Kingdom of Sardinia), lived largely as a military man, but is known as a French writer. [...] His Voyage autour de ma chambre (1794), a parody set in the tradition of the grand travel narrative, is an autobiographical account of how a young official, imprisoned in his room for six weeks, des cribes the customs, furniture, engravings, etc, as if it were a voyage to astrange land. He praises this voyage because it does not cost anything, fo r this reason it is strongly recommended to the poor, the infirm, and the lazy. His room is a long square, and the perimeter is thirty-six paces. " When I travel through my room," he writes, "I rarely follow a straight line: I go from the table towards a picture hanging in a corner; from there, I set out obliquely towards the door; but even though, when I begin, it really is my intention to go there, if I happen to meet my armchair en route, I don’t think twice about it, and settle down in it without further ado." Later, proceeding North, he encounters his bed, and in this way he lightheartedly continues his "Voyage". This work is remarkable for its play with the reader's imagination, along the lines of Laurence Sterne, whom Xavier admired.Xavier did not think much of Voyage, but his brother Joseph had it publish ed." - from wikipedia. Text in French. Lightly browned, else very good. 22.00
