After the great edition of the works of Boileau published in 1718 in folio format, and with the success the beautiful editions of this author have succeeded in 1722, 1729, 1745, with variations. This latest edition, well printed, whose subtle typographical variations are reminiscent of a folio reduction, has been revised and modernized the spelling; Boileau pamphlet dealing with the Jesuits was restored, and a life of the author has been added. Finally, one can not overemphasize the critical quality of this edition, which incorporates the comments and abundant and insightful comments of St. Mark's edition in 1745. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
