L'art de juger du caractère des hommes sur leur écriture

Saintin, Paris 1826, relié.

New edition partly original and printed on vellum.

illustrated book of 24 plates showing the scriptures of various celebrities, engraved after the original autographs.
The numbering of the boards within the fantasy: stopping at the thirty-third and forgotten figures en route.
Our edition is enriched with an essay on the art of judging men on their style; the writings of Louis XVI, Queen Bet-Antoinette and the Dauphin; and a curious alphabet of deaf-mutes with which one can learn in a few hours conversing with them.
