A rare first edition printing of the history of Pierre Montmaur – the self-proclaimed “greatest parasite the world has ever seen!”

 

Pierre Montmaur was a 17th-century scholar and poet who lived so boisterously that his behavior antics are more lasting than his intellectual works. According to White in ‘Notes and Queries’,

“Montmaur appears to have been a man of some learning. He gave offence to the Parisian literati of his day, who combined their forces, and attempted to extinguish him by succession of lampoons. These attacks Sallengre has collected and published in his ‘Histoire de Pierre de Montmaur.”

 

Albert Sallengre published this collection of satires against Montmaur in 1715 and included ‘The Parasite Mormon’ – the controversial work by Mothe le Vayer which noted that Montamur’s name was the inspiration for Mormonism.
