Summary note
Tabarin was the street name assumed by the most famous of the Parisian street charlatans, Anthoine Girard (c. 1584-August 16, 1633), who amused his audiences in the Place Dauphine by farcical dialogue with his brother Philippe (as Mondor), with whom he reaped a golden harvest by the sale of quack medicines for several years after 1618. Numerous farces and dialogues were credited to him, and long series of cheap leaflets purporting to be his complete works began to appear as early as 1622. Cf. Wikipedia.
