    More Information:

    Le Noble (1643-1711) Procureur general au Parlement Metz, prolific author; he was falsely accused and put in prison, there he became the lover of Gabrielle Pereau "la belle Epiciere". He escaped but was recaptured and banished. He was an indefatigable author.

    "Cet un recueil de recits bougeois, qui souvent ne sont pas sans ressamblance avec les contes de Boccace. Les uns sont concus dans lamaniere espagnole, les autres sont simplement des petits romans d'intrigue, avec une pointe de realisme. Lenoble a un penchant marque a choisir ses subjets et ses personnages dans les classes les plus humbles: ce ne sont que jardiniers, tailleurs, donneurs s'eau benite, laquals, sages-femmes, etc., qu'il fait agir et parler suivant leur condition. Les caricatures ne sont pas rares dans le Gage touche, qui se heurte quelquefois au burlesque." Gay/Lemonnyer

    This popular collection was first published in 1695 in Paris and went through a number of editions attesting to its popularity.        STCN 172412. Gay/Lemonnyer II,366. Rose 1885 (1718 ed.) Bibl. Arcana 434 [1718 ed.)
