Collection of free plays, sometimes obscene, composed by Charles Collé, Montcrif, Piron, etc., published by Corbie or Sallé, secretary of Maurepas. The identification of the authors is given according to an autograph manuscript of Collé himself, composed in the "poissard" style which ensured his success. The parade is based on popular comedy and features free love affairs in light and gallant plays. The titles are evocative: La confiance des cocus, La chaste Isabelle, Le doigt mouillé, L'amant poussif, Isabelle grosse par vertu, Le marchand de merde.
