(1560) L'Heptameron des Novvelles de Tresillvstre et Tresexcellente Princesse Marguerite de Valois, Royne de Nauarre: Remis en son vray ordre, confus au parauant en sa premiere impression: & dedié à tresillustre & tresvertueuse Princesse On, Royne de Nauarre, par Claude Gruget Fixe.

[Cf. Brunet, III, 1416-17; Tchemerzine, VII, 392-93; Fairfax Murray, I, 471-72; Cartier, op. cit., who characterizes this as the most exact of the "éditions originales," p. 219.]

(1578) L'Heptameron ov Histoires des amans fortunez des Novvelles de tresillustre & tresexcellente Princesse, Marguerite de Valois Royne de Nauarre ... A Lyon, Povr Loys Cloqvemin. 1578. [ Newberry Library.]

[Cf. Brunet, III, 1417; Tchemerzine, VII, 395. The editions of 1561, 1567, and 1572 have not been collated.]

Pierre Boaistuau, dit Launay, was the first editor of the Heptameron. Nine years after Marguerite's death in 1549, he published an edition containing sixty-seven of the seventy-two stories, under the title of Histoire des Amans fortunez. It was issued by Sertenas and other booksellers. The edition was apparently as incorrect as it was incomplete, and in the following year, 1559, Claude Gruget (a valet de chambre of Marguerite's) undertook the publication of a more complete and more correct edition. This became the accepted text, and it was accompanied by its preface in a whole series of editions during the century. The history of the first editions is given by Pierre Jourda in his Marguerite d'Angoulême, Paris: Champion, 1930, II, 655-60.
