ANONYME (Prostitution) Brevet d'invention - Caisse d'Horloge


(Prostitution) Brevet d'invention - Caisse d'Horloge

Paris s.d. (circa 1800), 23,5x18,3cm, une feuille.

Brevet d'invention - Caisse d'Horloge [Patent of Invention - Clock Case]

Paris [ca 1800] | 23.5 x 18.3 cm | single sheet
A curious manuscript comprising fifteen or so lines in pencil on lined paper, bearing the title «Brevet d'invention - Caisse d'Horloge».
«A noted physiognomist tells us that women of ill repute have the mark of their behavior on their faces. In giving over their bodies to a shameful use, the blood changes and becomes watery, decomposition begins and colors fade. The skin grows wrinkled, dark rings appear under the eyes, and the blood as changed by vice has no more of a sex than the case of a clok (sic). It is for this reason that an Association has been formed against the corruption of morals, which leads to the degeneration of the human race. It marks the easy of virtue with a clok case [sic] so that they will be exposed to public vilification. They can be recognized by their unusual toilet, the product of their criminal behavior and the shame of honest girls. The Repairer of Morals is dispatched by the Association, whose seat is in Paris.»
A very rare manuscript document.
