Gargantua and Pantagruel : Book 5 (Illustrated) by Francois Rabelais

Franois Rabelais (1494-1553) was a major French Renaissance writer, doctor and humanist. Gargantua and Pantagruel tells the story of two giants - a father, Gargantua, and his son, Pantagruel - and their adventures, written in an amusing, extravagant, and satirical vein. His use of his native tongue was astoundingly original, lively, and creative. He introduced dozens of Greek, Latin, and Italian loan-words and direct translations of Greek and Latin compound words and idioms into French.
