Manuscript, "Idiotismes Francais et Proverbes - [manuscript]; Lucet, Joachim Sim - 1843. 
France, early 19th century. Hardcover. Very Good. Period half sheep and marbled paper; 4to (197 x 254 mm); pp. 70, handwritten in black ink on the rectos only, in a tidy, tiny script. Backstrip chipped, with gatherings exposed (but everything holding just fine); boards a bit scuffed. An extensive compilation, in two parts, of French idioms and proverbs -- listed in alphabetical order, and with explanations. The preface suggests joint authorship, but Joachim-Simeon Lucet (the London-based author of "Langue Francaise," 1843) undoubtedly had some hand in the creation of this interesting, rigorous, and frequently amusing manuscript. Provenance: Brent Graton-Maxfield, with his ownership signature and notations on the front paste-down.
