PUISIEUX (Madeleine de). Advice to a friend. [Followed by] Les caractères [deux parties]. London, s.n., 1756. Three parts in 1 vol. in-12, VIII-86 p. ; 120 p. ; VI-122 p., contemporary speckled tan basane, smooth spine decorated, fawn title page, ornate caissons, red edges (binding rubbed but not severe, first few pages handled with a few stains). First collective edition gathering the Conseils à une amie and the two parts of the Caractères, published respectively in 1749, 1750 and 1751. These texts were at one time attributed to Diderot, who had an affair with the moralist and novelist Madeleine de Puisieux (1720-1798), but his contribution is now considered hypothetical and the work is restored to Madame de Puisieux.
