This has french words on it, I think. It says LE COUCHER Les yeux charges d'une donce langueur Zelis va dans le sein d'na sommeil enchanteur Reprendre une beaute' nouvelle: Songes flatteurs on yous appelle On a livre' pour vous aux flammes De tendres Billets.... de la discretion A-t'elle tort ou bien raifon? Respectons le secret des Dames.
And then on the very bottom it says Grave a iEau Forte par Daclos(not sure about that spelling) et termane au Burin par Bosse. That is all I know about it.
I know the pic isn't that great. It is three women around a bed.
