Beschreibung

On offer is a absolutely super, original 18th Century French language stampless letter dated 1796 with postmarks for Lyon et al, being a manuscript relic of one of the most active and extraordinary of times for French watchmakers, horologists and timekeepers who were in the spotlight during these early days of the French Revolution and onset of the Napoleonic era as the Decimal Calendar and time system was conceived and implemented. The three [3] page letter is signed from cousin 'Plumery' who send his regards to Margaret and her beau Pierre (Odet?) responding a past letter. Postmarked French Revolutionary Year 5, addressed to Odet, Horlogerie, a Sarragosse, Espayne par Via Perpignan (Zaragoza in English; a district of Aragon; Spain; by way of the Pyrenees.) While untranslated for the most part the letter appears to cover personal and business matters mentioning Paris, 79 Prennast du Pagrien and 79 Gervais, the watchmaker's district at that time. Ms Boncillion of Paris is also mentioned. The 'Odet' the letter was sent to, we believe, relates to one of two noted horologists named Odet: Odet Etienne; as stated online: 'Maître horloger genevois. Forme Louis Gabriel Colladon en 1779.' Or Odet Pierre-François: 'Fils de Gabriel. Origianaire de Genthod, environs de Genève. Horloger. Reçu habitant de Genève en 1756.' There is a 1" side edge fold separation, two small holes where the seal was opened but overall G. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 0002236
