An attractive first edition/first printing in Fine condition in alike dust-jacket.

Claude Page is a young mechanical genius in 18th-century France, on the eve of the revolution. He studies under an heretical abbé and apprentices himself to a pornographic bookseller in Paris. But his greatest invention--a talking mechanical head--eventually leads to his execution, one more bizarre that Marie Antoinette's. A lusty picture of French society of the time.
