        Almanach 1906 + Le Jésuitisme

      1905 - Ensemble manuscrit constitué d'un almanach et d'un feuillet complémentaire. L'almanach: Sa couverture représente une ode au vin signée Guiguet avec "croquis de François" (sans doute la même personne). La dernière page est une lettre au crayon demandant à sa soeur de le sortir de l'asile de Bron parce qu'il va mieux! Le feuillet complémentaire: Utopie économique écrite par un aliéné de l'Hôpital psychiatrique Saint-Anne. Il propose de remplacer dans le monde entier les billets de banque par des billets-actions et des billets-obligations-des Etats. Les salaires seront divisés en: "salaire de l'existence" (le minimum vital) et "salaire de la corporation" (rémunération du travail). Cette utopie est inspirée à l'auteur par "une vision de Jésus, verbe des travailleurs"; le "Jésuitisme" représenterait la doctrine de Jésus. Il est signé "Dr Abouchard dit Drevet, Christ-Dieu". On suppose que l'almanach et son supplément "le Jésuitisme" sont passés d'un (ou deux) aliéné de Sainte-Anne à un autre aliéné du Vinatier. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      Washington, DC: William H. Davis, Stenographer and Principal of Lincoln Temple Business College. (1905). First. 23 folio sheets, typed rectos only and bradbound into unprinted blue paper wraps. Three horizontal folds, tiny tears to the edges of the wrappers, a near fine set. A verbatim transcription of the commencement ceremony noting Rev. William V. Tunnell's invocation, and brief addresses by Hon. H.B.F. Macfarland, and Hon. W.S. Montgomery, the bulk of the transcript is dedicated to Washington's address (complete with notes on the audience's reaction with applause and laughter) and which appears from page five to midway through page 22. OCLC lists a transcription of the speech in another volume published in 1905 (two copies), but makes no mention of this stenographic record.
