Onan, or le Tombeau du Mont-Cindre fait Historique. Presente en 1809 a l'Academie des Jeux Floraux de Toulouse. 8vo, pp.[6], engraved frontispiece, x,99[1]pp. + [3]pp, Lyon: De l'Imprimerie de J.B. Kindelen, Se vend, a Lyon et a Paris, 1809.

Engraved frontispiece ('Ruines de Camp de Cesar') by Richard; bound in contemporary red quarter morocco with gilt spine titling, marbled paper boards and marbled endpapers, Some wear to extremities, occasional light browning to text; a very good copy.

This poem (with extensive notes) on the perils of masturbation is definitely rare. COPAC lists two copies. Although the collation is complex, that in the Wellcome Library clearly has fewer pages,  The other copy listed is in the British Library.
