About this Item

Manuscript on paper, in French; tall folio (385 x 273 mm); pp. 19. Written in black ink with red, green, brown and yellow ink between whimsically decorated borders of several doves, a lion, confronting rabbits and snails and other fantastical creatures, floreate decoration and flourishing pen marks. Original marbled paper wrappers (edges slightly curled, worm hole). Fine calligraphic writing manual, studying letters and copying popular adages. Title-page notes that this manuscript was created by "Cony" for the Christian Schools of Montpellier, France. Some sayings offer a glimpse of tradition township motto: "Ceux qui ont trouve quelque chose sont tenus de le rendre a celui qui la perdu et s'ils ne le connoissent pas faire tout ce qu'ils peuveunt pour le connaitre a Montpellier.".
