Droll Tales 9

The ninth tale in the first Decade of Balzac’s collection of bawdy tales contains snippets of the life of a worldly cleric which to my mind to not constitute a coherent whole.

Entitled The Curé of Azay-Le-Rideau by the Folio Society (featuring

an illustration by Mervyn Peake),

and by The Bodley Head featuring one by Jean de Bosschère;

and The Vicar of Azay-Le-Rideau by The Bibliophilist Society’s

edition featuring Gustave Dorés work.
