The silver work is shaped in the common shell shape, surrounded by some floral and ornamental designs. The shape of this silver work came from the Province of Friesland and was made in the city Meppel. This design became very populair around Staphorst and due to that almost all the silver work on books from Staphorst is alike. The inner side of the top clasp has the name Cornelia J.J. Wartena engraved. The silver work on churchbooks was seen as a status symbol, the binding showed the social class and wealth of a churchgoer. The Staphorst Bibles were often worn at a rope or chain and belonged to the traditional costume for the Sunday. The silver chain of this copy points out that it was the property of a wealthy person, the lower class wore the Bible at a blue rope or in the case of mourning a black rope.)

        NEW HAMPSHIRE: New Hampshire entworfen von D.F. Sotzmann.

      - Daniel Friedrich Sotzmann’s very rare large format map is one of the great 18th century maps of New Hampshire, and the earliest reasonably obtainable rendering of the Samuel Holland’s groundbreaking survey. This very rare and beautifully designed map is the only reasonably obtainable large format 18th Century map of New Hampshire. Made by the prominent Prussian cartographer Daniel Friedrich Sotzmann it was separately published in 1796 in Hamburg as part of series of 10 maps meant to accompany Christoph Daniel Ebeling great description and history of the United States, Erdbeschreibung und Geschichte von Amerika (7 vols, 1793-1816). Largely based on the first scientific survey of the state, conducted by Samuel Holland from 1770 to 1775, Sotzmann’s map presents an exactingly detailed and highly accurate rendering of New Hampshire. With toponymy in German, the state is divided into ‘Grafshafts’ (counties), which are further divided into numerous townships, of which some had been established only very recently. The depiction of the physical landscape is very thorough, with numerous lakes and rivers delineated and areas of elevation distinguished by hachures. Indeed, this is one of the first maps to shown a realistic depiction of the White Mountains and associated ranges. The state’s road system is carefully depicted as are many other aspects of the human geography, such as mills (distinguished by the symbol of a six-pointed wheel), churches/meeting houses (portrayed pictographically), as well as the locations of hundreds of rural homesteads, some of which are specifically labeled. Several private land patents are also outlined and named. The map also features a number of interesting details, such as the location of ‘Dartmouth Collegium’ (Dartmouth College), founded along the banks of the Connecticut River in 1769. An interesting detail includes the delineation of two alternative projections of the ‘Mason Curve Line’ as separately surveyed in 1768 and 1769. These surveys were conducted in an effort to demarcate the boundaries of "Mason’s Curve", a giant proprietary land grant that extended 60 miles beyond Portsmouth. Originally granted by James I to John Mason in 1622, the title was purchased from Mason’s decedents by investors in 1767. Unfortunately, for the new claimants, their title was annulled during the American Revolution. The observer will immediately notice that the map is exceptionally well designed, with the typography and engraved physical details carefully sized and spaced so as to maximize clarity, granting a simple beauty to the composition. Sotzmann developed this signature style of cartographic design, in part due to his many years working alongside architects and civil engineers (whose plans necessarily had be drafted in a clean and clear style), which was also in line with the prevailing ethic of Enlightenment empiricism, which eschewed superfluous details. The Sources of the Sotzmann Map The principal source for Sotzmann’s map was Samuel Holland’s A Topographical Map of the State of New Hampshire (London, 1784). Holland’s map represented one of the finest regional surveys ever undertaken in the British American colonies. It was an offshoot of the General Survey of British North America, an epic programme to systematically map the Britain’s North American dominions through trigonometric surveys, which lasted from 1764 to 1775. While the General Survey was never completed, due the advent of the American Revolution, its achievements represented the largest and most technically impressive surveying operation ever undertaken to date. Samuel Holland (1728-1801), a seasoned British military engineer of Dutch birth, was charged with heading the Northern Department of the General Survey, which aimed to map the entire area from Quebec and the Canadian Maritimes down the Potomac River. Meanwhile, William Gerard De Brahm, as head of the Southern Survey, was to work northwards from Florida. Notably, the General Survey’s prior

        De L'Economie Politique et Morale de L'Espece Humaine. Zwei Bände.

      London, Cooper et Graham, 1796. - (24), 408 S. und (4), 454 S., etwas spätere Halbleder-Bände mit roten goldegrägten Rückenschildern, ovalen Bandnummern-Schildern und Linienvergoldung (die Rücken stellenweise gebräunt und berieben, die Ecken ebenfalls etwas berieben). Erste Ausgabe. (Kreis B 3197). "Jean (Johann) Herrenschwand (1728 - 1812) gehörte zu den Physiokraten der Spätzeit. Vielleicht sollte er überhaupt nicht zu den Physiokraten gerechnet werden, denn er war kein Anhänger der Orthodoxie. Aber er war ein befähigter Wirtschaftswissenschaftler." (Schumpeter, Geschichte der ökon. Analyse, S. 294). Herrenschwand "forme la transition entre l'ècole de Quesnay et celle d'Adam Smith." (Blanqui, Histoire de l'Economie politique, 1842, II, 437). Sein Anliegen war es, "ein System der politischen Ökonomie unter dem Aspekt der Humanität zu errichten. Als eigenständiger Denker stand er den damals geltenden Theoriegruppen der Nationalökonomie kritisch gegenüber und vermochte sich daher keiner Richtung anschließen." (A. Tautscher in der NDB, VIII, 682). In der Schweiz geboren, lebte er bis zur Jahrhundertwende in London, später in Paris und veröffentlichte alle Werke in französischer Sprache, was Roscher zu der Bemerkung veranlasste, daß "ein Niedersitzen gleichsam zwischen drei Stühlen, . seiner Wirksamkeit natürlich sehr schaden mußte." . - Innendeckel mit kl. zeitgen ex libris, Titelblätter verso und 2 weitere S. mit gelöschten Bibl.-stempeln, nur die ersten und letzten Seiten leicht stockfleckig.

        Ueber das Organ der Seele.

      Friedrich Nicolovius, Königsberg 1796 - 4to (247 x 210 mm). [8] 86 [2] pp. Signatures: ?4 A-K4 L2 chi2, 48 leaves. Errata on final leaf chi2r. 3 engraved plates, the first signed 'Koeck delineavit, Soemmering direxit, Lud. Schmidt scups' (the other two with the engraver's signature only), numbered Tab I, Tab I (an outline of the previous plate) and Tab II. 20th century quarter calf over marbled boards, spine titled in gilt (little rubbed, corners bumped). Text only little browned, title-page a bit soiled, browned and spotted; light dampstains to lower corner of first and final leaves and plates, foxing to final plate and final leaf. Provenance: Walter Pagel library (ownership label to front pastedown), autograph letter from Walther Riese to Walter Pagel and xerox copy of article by Riese about this work loosely inserted*. ---- Norman 1973; NLM/Blake, p. 424; Choulant-Frank p. 306; Warda, Kant, 159. FIRST EDITION. Soemmerring held to the ancient notion that the cerebral cavities were the seat of the soul. His investigation in support of this hypothesis advanced our knowledge of the anatomy of the brain and provoked important philosophical discussion. "The effect of Soemmerring's publication was sensational. But it also provoked much criticsm. It was openly rejected by others. What the profession had to say was of minor importance when compared with the comments made by two of Soemmerring's greatest contemporaries: Goethe and Kant. The work was dedicated to Kant" (Riese, p.314). Soemmerring corresponded with Kant before the publication of the book and invited him to write a response to his work. Kant's 'Bemerkungen zu Soemmerring's Ueber das Organ der Seele' were appended to a letter to Soemmering, 10 August 1795, and first printed here on pp. 81-86. Tab I is "the first correct picture of the mesial aspect of the cerebral hemispheres, a sagittal section, showing the ventricular system and its walls" (Riese, p. 312). According to Choulant it was still the best available in 1852, though Riese says that it falls far short of modern illustrations. Tab II "represents the fourth ventricle of the brain opened from above and from behind" (Choulant). The plates were drawn by Christian Koeck (1759-1825), trained by Soemmering as a scientific draughtsman. Tab I is followed by an outline plate, also labeled as Tab I; Tab II has the shaded and outline images one above the other. The outlines are keyed to the printed captions on the last leaf of letterpress. *Laid in is a long autograph letter from Walther Riese to Pagel ('Mein Lieber Walter (ohne H.) Pagel.') dated 10 March 1966 and referring to Riese's article on the book (present as a xeroxcopy). Walther Riese, The 150 th anniversary of S. T. Soemmerring's Organ of the Soul.

      chez Jean Mourer ; Hignou et Comp., A Lausanne en Suisse 1796 - In-8 de 376-(2) pp., cartonnage papier vert, étiquette manuscite (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale de deuxième état. Mme de Staël avait tout juste trente ans lorqu'elle publia cet imortant ouvrage, le premier de ceux qui allaient fonder sa réputation littéraire. L'ouvrage devait compter deux parties ; celle-ci, sur le bonheur des individus, et la seconde, sur le bonheur des Nations, qui ne fut jamais composée. « A peine l'ouvrage venait-il d'être publié que Mme de Staël décidait d'y apporter quelques indispensables modifications d'élocution, lesquelles entrainèrent pour l'éditeur la constitution de six cartons, en sorte que son édition se trouve représentée en deux « états » différents, bien qu'ils comportent, tous deux, le même nombre de pages et qu'ils soient agrémentés, tous deux, du même errata ».

Reprinted in English in 1827. Hoefer 7, 366; Barbier II 772. Jacques Brez was a botanist and historian of the Piedmont region as well as a minister. This book details the history of the Vaudois, or Waldensians, from 1100 and its foundation by Peter Waldo, through all eleven persecutions up to the Piedmont Easter of 1655 and the efforts of Joshua Janavel in the late 17th century. The Piedmont Waldensians had been settled in the high valleys of Piedmont since Waldo and his followers were run out of Lyons as they continued their pursuit of Christianity based on the New Testament. The Waldensians were the first splinter group from the Catholic faith prior to Martin Luther and the Lutherans and the first group to translate the Bible from the Vulgate. The timing of the publication is to be noted as several months had passed since the Piedmont had been overrun by the France which led to the 1796 Treaty of Paris, bringing the Piedmont back into French rule. Though it may be estimated that Brez wished to inform his fellow Waldensians and other about their history and struggle with the upcoming Napoleonic Wars, Napoleon allowed the Waldensians to enjoy genuine religious freedom, and he protected them in their rights. Following his defeat in 1814, they were again cruelly persecuted till 1848 when the King of Sardinia granted his Vaudois subjects freedom of religion on equality with his other subjects ending the nearly 800 year war between the Catholic Church and the Waldensians.

      Huesca, 1796. Folio. Old stain on final leaf, affecting a few lines of text; light marginal stain on two leaves. Else near fine. In a half morocco box. A rare regional printing of this far-reaching treaty. The treaty, comprising twenty-three articles, was signed on Sept. 4, 1796. Senator Thomas Pinckney represented the United States in the difficult negotiations. Various clauses of the treaty define the boundaries of Florida, establish the Mississippi as the definite boundary between Spanish Louisiana and the settlements of the United States and, most significantly, secure common navigation of the Mississippi for Americans and Spaniards. After 1783, Spain had asserted her absolute right to the navigation of the Mississippi. To the western settler, the Alleghenies and the bad roads were enough to cut off any route to market other than down the river, and it was not easy to restrain acts of forcible defiance of the Spanish claim. The northern states were willing to allow the Spanish claim in return for a commercial treaty, but the southern states protested angrily, and the question threatened the stability of the United States. The specter was not laid to rest until the negotiation and ratification of this treaty, which had wide-reaching ramifications for American expansion. This printing is not in Palau, Medina, Servies, nor on OCLC. Rare.

      DECORATED MEDIEVAL MANUSCRIPT IN LATIN ON PARCHMENT WITH MUSICAL NOTATION, Central or Northern Italy (Umbria?), c. 1260-1300, with later additions including a calendar of c. 1350. 265 x 185 mm. 225 folios on parchment, missing five leaves (collation, i8 ii2 [original structure uncertain; missing text after 1] iii11 [out of 12, missing 2, with loss of text] iv-vi12 vii10 [out of 12, missing 3 and 11, both with loss of text] viii-xi12 xii7 [out of 8, 8 cancelled with no loss of text] xiii11 [out of 12, missing 2, with loss of text] xiv8 xv-xx12), catchwords and quire signatures, written in a rounded southern Gothic bookhand in two columns of 22 lines (justification, 189-192 x 127-130 mm.), musical notation copied in two columns of 36 lines in square notation on red 4-line staves (justification, 203 x 120 mm.), ruled in lead with the top two, middle two, and bottom two horizontal rules full across and single full-length vertical bounding lines inside, outside, and between the columns, additional rules in lower and outer margins, red rubrics, red or blue paraphs, large ?"KL?" monograms in red and blue in the calendar, 2- to 3-line red or blue initials with contrasting pen decoration, numerous signs of centuries of use throughout. BINDING: Bound in Italy in the fifteenth century brown leather, blind-stamped with palmettes, rope-interlace, fleur-de-lis, and foliage, over substantial beveled wooden boards, rounded spine with four raised bads, four corner bosses on upper and lower boards, two clasp and catch fasteners, back to front (restored), edges once dyed green(?), rebacked with the spine laid down, resewn, with reinforcement strips added in the middle of quires, new head and tail bands, pastedowns comprise two fragments from another manuscript, copied in thirteenth-century Italy. TEXT: This volume is a Breviary, a liturgical manuscript that contains all the texts require for the celebration of the Divine Office. Beyond that, however, this large-format manuscript is a marvelous artifact of Franciscan life and worship. Used for singing by the Choir, it is notable for its content, including other texts not commonly found in more portable Franciscan Breviaries: the Franciscan Ceremonial (known to its editor in only 35 manuscripts), the Indutus planeta (Haymo of Faversham?'s description of the private Mass), the Franciscan liturgical statutes of 1254, and others. It is accompanied by additions over at least two centuries and other plentiful signs of early use. PROVENANCE: Copied in Italy for Franciscan use, as suggested by the evidence of the text, as well as the style of the script and decoration. Textual evidence shows that this must date after 1260, since it includes the Ritual for the Last Sacraments and other texts promulgated around then. The texts on ff. 1-10v, the calendar and the two following folios, are likely later additions, given differences in the script and decoration, but also Franciscan. Numerous additions to the calendar in many different hands, some of which added saints particular to central and Northern Italy. Belonged to Thomas Rodd (1796-1849), London; sold by Sotheby?'s, 2 February 1850, lot 120. Belonged to James Orchard Halliwell-Phillipps (1820-1889). Halliwell-Phillips presented the book to Plymouth Proprietary Library (see bookplate on inside front cover); sold by the library, 12 December 1977, lot 62. CONDITION: Parchment cut away from the lower edges of about 10 leaves, sometimes patched with parchment or paper from other manuscripts, loss of text copied in black on f. 104 (powdered/rubbed away), bottom corners of ff. 166-177v very worn, outer corners soiled, ink has faded on some folios, some worming on the opening and closing folios, but otherwise in fairly good condition.

        FOURTH CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES: AT THE FIRST SESSION...AN ACT FOR ESTABLISHING TRADING HOUSES WITH THE INDIAN TRIBES [caption title]

      Philadelphia, 1796. folded folio sheet. Signed by Secretary of State Timothy Pickering at the end of text. Manuscript docket in an unknown hand on the blank fourth page. Fine. In a half morocco box. This act, known as the Trading House Act, was passed by the first session of the Fourth United States Congress on April 18, 1796. It sought to bring commerce with Indian tribes under the control of the U.S. government by licensing and restricting trade through a small group of authorized agents operating trading houses beyond the designated frontier of settlement. The act made purely private trade illegal, a step taken to control exploitation of the Indian populace, regulate border tensions, attempt to influence the Indians in their British and Spanish contacts to the North and South, and bring fees to the government. The assertion of government control over the Indian trade was a direct outgrowth of the American victory over the Indian tribes of the Old Northwest at the Battle of Fallen Timbers in 1794 and the Treaty of Greenville in August 1795, but it sought to address an endemic problem of illicit trade. As part of the peace, a boundary line known as "the Greenville line" was established, beyond which the U.S. government agreed to prevent settlement. By this act only licensed traders would be allowed into the Indian territories west of the line, working through agents in settled trading houses. The President would appoint agents to head the trading houses, and all trade had to be accounted for to the Executive branch. The price of trade goods would be regulated, and any private trade was strictly forbidden. Although the terms of the Greenville Treaty were soon abrogated, this act set the pattern for regulating the Indian trade until 1822, when the system was abolished. The act ends with the printed signatures of George Washington and John Adams, and the autograph signature of Timothy Pickering as Secretary of State. A Revolutionary soldier and key figure in Federal politics, Pickering served as Secretary of State from 1795 to 1800, first under Washington and then Adams. This would appear to be an official copy, actually signed by Pickering. All official copies of acts in the first three Congresses were signed by the Secretary of State, but the practice was then (supposedly) dropped; this is the first time we have seen a Fourth Congress act so signed. Rare: NAIP locates only five copies, evidently none signed.

The specter was not laid to rest until the negotiation and ratification of this treaty, which had wide-reaching ramifications for American expansion. A very rare document. The Maggs-Streeter-Beinecke copy of this document realized $5000 at the Streeter sale in 1967.

        THE AMERICAN ATLAS; CONTAINING THE FOLLOWING MAPS.... [with:] AN HISTORICAL, GEOGRAPHICAL, COMMERCIAL, AND PHILOSOPHICAL VIEW OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AND OF THE EUROPEAN SETTLEMENTS IN AMERICA AND THE WEST-INDIES

      New York, 1796. Reid atlas: Folio. Modern half calf and marbled boards, calf tipped corners. Titlepage and maps expertly washed and rehinged, signs of foxing remaining on a few maps. Gutter margin on Maine map expertly refurbished. Overall a very good copy. Winterbotham: Three-quarter modern red morocco and marbled boards, spines gilt, leather labels. Tanned, some light foxing, else very good. The Reid atlas is one of the rarest and most interesting of American atlases, preceded only by the 1795 Carey atlas as the earliest United States atlas. It includes detailed engraved maps of North and South America, and the United States, with individual maps of New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and the West Indies. The continent maps, the general map of the United States, and those of Kentucky and Washington are copied from the London edition of Winterbotham. The rest of the maps are original to this work. The Winterbotham properly accompanies the Reid atlas, although the two are usually found separately, noted "First American Edition" on the titlepage, although Howes lists an edition of 1795-96, in thirty-three weekly numbers bound in four volumes. He calls the present, enlarged edition the "best." Winterbotham was prosecuted for sedition for two sermons he preached in 1792. He was found guilty and sentenced to two years' imprisonment and a fine of £100 for each sermon. He wrote the present work while serving time in Newgate Prison. It treats the discovery and early settlement of America, the American Revolution, each of the states of the Northeast and South, the Northwest Territory, Canada, and settlements in South America and the West Indies. Most of the handsome plates illustrate birds, quadrupeds, and reptiles found in the West Indies. The color plate represents the tobacco plant. These are some of the earliest natural history plates produced in Philadelphia. The plate of the tobacco plant (third volume, opposite p.427) is the first color plate regularly published in an American book, here present in a very good impression, "Publish'd by Smith Reed and Wayland New-York.

        THE AMERICAN COAST PILOT; CONTAINING, THE COURSES AND DISTANCES FROM BOSTON TO ALL THE PRINCIPAL HARBOURS, CAPES AND HEADLANDS INCLUDED BETWEEN PASSAMAQUADY AND THE CAPES OF VIRGINIA - WITH DIRECTIONS FOR SAILING INTO, AND OUT OF, ALL THE PRINCIPAL PORTS AND HARBOURS...ALSO - COURSES, DIRECTIONS, DISTANCES, &c. &c. FROM THE CAPES OF VIRGINIA, TO THE RIVER MISSISSIPPI, FROM THE LATEST SURVEYS AND OBSERVATIONS. (APPROVED BY EXPERIENCED PILOTS AND COASTERS.)

      Newburyport, Ma., 1796. Original plain front wrapper, rear wrapper lacking, as is much of the spine paper. Wrapper soiled and edgeworn. Lightly age-toned, an occasional fox mark, some light staining in lower margin of half the text. Many corners folded. In all, a very good copy, in untouched original condition. In a blue half morocco and cloth box, spine gilt. First edition of the primary American navigational guide, the first such book to be compiled and printed in the United States. This copy bears an exceptional early provenance, having belonged to Portland, Maine ship's captain Lemuel Moody. Furlong's work includes detailed sailing directions to many of the east coast harbors and ports, listing courses and distances from Cape Cod and Cape Ann to the mid-Atlantic and all the way south to the Florida Keys. A section at the conclusion gives courses and distances between Passamaquoddy Bay and the Mississippi River. Not only a path-breaking American book, it was also crucially important in facilitating trade and commerce in the early years of the Republic. Publisher Edmund Blunt was the moving force behind the publication of Furlong's work. He also published Nathaniel Bowditch's NEW AMERICAN PRACTICAL NAVIGATOR in 1802 and the first American edition of John H. Moore's NEW PRACTICAL NAVIGATOR in 1799. Furlong's work takes pride of place as the earliest and rarest of native American navigational guides. There are many who have proposed that Lawrence Furlong did not exist, but was instead a pseudonym for Blunt himself. Lawrence Wroth, however, showed that Captain Furlong (1734-1806) was known as a sailor as early as 1758. Others have asserted that Blunt wrote the majority of the work and only used Furlong's name for credibility. John Campbell lays all questions to rest in his extensive study of Furlong's and Bowditch's works. Campbell writes that Furlong prepared the manuscript for Blunt in 1795, and in February 1796 deposited the work with the Newburyport Marine Society for the approbation of respected navigators. "Whatever may have been the origin of the Furlong book, there is no question as to the degree of success with which it met, from the beginning, in its busy maritime world" - Wroth. This copy bears the ownership signature on the front free endpaper of "Lemuel Moody 1796 Portland." Moody (1767-1846) came from a prominent Portland family. As a young boy during the Revolution he carried water to American troops, and later began a career as a ship's captain. In 1799 he and his crew aboard the Betsey were captured by French privateers during the "Quasi-War" between the United States and France. Shortly thereafter Moody retired from the profession of sailing, and put his energies into the construction and operation of the Portland Observatory, an important maritime signal tower, which served the merchant community of Portland for decades and which helped identify British ships in the area during the War of 1812. In 1825 Lemuel Moody published a detailed and significant map of Casco Bay, and he was instrumental in the construction of Portland's Mt. Joy Hospital and in the Portland Marine Society. Moody has corrected the text in several places, following the instructions in the errata. More significantly, this copy contains eight pages of manuscript notes in Moody's hand giving directions, for example, for anchoring in Cape Cod, for negotiating Sail Rock Passage in Maine, for Sombrero Passage near Anguilla, and for the leeward passage of Antigua. Other manuscript entries give "soundings on Georges Marsh" as well as "Latitudes of Sundries Places observed near to by L.M. corrected." "The first edition of the first book of sailing directions to be compiled and printed in the United States" - JCB. "A work whose influence upon American shipping is inestimable" - Rosenbach. All early editions of THE AMERICAN COAST PILOT are quite rare, and this first edition is superlatively rare, with only three other copies appearing at auction in the past forty years. The only copies to appear since 1991 sold for $57,600 (at the Frank Streeter sale) in 2007 and for $74,500 in 2011. This is an outstanding, unsophisticated copy, with a noteworthy contemporary provenance and manuscript navigational notes.

        Traité élémentaire de l'imprimerie, ou le Manuel de l'Imprimeur ; avec 36 planches en taille-douce.

      chez Veuve Tillard et Fils, A Paris 1796 - In-8 de IV-348-(1) pp., 1 tableau replié et 36 planches, cartonnage moderne. Nouvelle édition, posthume, publiée deux années après l'exécution de Momoro. Né à Besançon, Momoro y acquit une formation de graveur et d?imprimeur ; il monta bientôt à Paris où il acquit rapidement une bonne réputation comme graveur de lettres. Il était à la veille de la Révolution un des meilleurs imprimeurs de Paris et son Traité élémentaire de l?imprimerie devint rapidement un classique. La Révolution le vit se lancer dans la politique ; dès juillet 1789, il imprima La France Libre de Desmoulins, et bientôt le Journal du Club des Cordeliers. Il s?attribua lui-même le titre de premier imprimeur de la Liberté. Momoro prit une part active à la déchristianisation et contraignit sa jeune femme à jouer le rôle de la déesse Raison lors de la grande fête parisienne. Mme Momoro, dit-on, pleura beaucoup pendant la cérémonie et s?évanouit sur l?autel lors de la célébration à Notre-Dame. Lors de la crise de ventôse, il tenta de jouer le rôle de conciliateur entre Cordeliers et Jacobins ; son rôle dans les événements de la période n?est pas très clair. S?associa-t-il ou non au mouvement favorable à une insurrection ? Ce n?est pas certain, bien qu?il semble l?avoir appuyé dans la section de Marat qu?il présidait à l?époque. Il fut arrêté le 23 ventôse, jugé et condamné avec les hébertistes. Rousseurs. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
