About This Item

Paris: In MS: "M. Navarre résidant à l'ile Bourbon, de retour pour la seconde fois des Indes; a receuilly (sic) ces pièces à Paris en d[ernier]e année 1774, pour Mr. Desarnod son amy, 1774. Very good. Sammelband containing a MS title-page, and 18 printed works foliated 5-138, 2-4 (see below), 139-320. At end: MS contents leaf enumerating the "Ordre des pieces renfermes dans ce Recueil." Contemporary French mottled calf (worn), spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece, marbled endpapers, edges stained red. Very good condition. Sammelband of "all" the legal tracts concerning the sensational lawsuits between Pierre de Beaumarchais and his nemesis, Magistrate Goezman. Our volume features 18 such tracts (sic). Unusually, the MS title-page gives the name of the compiler (one M. Navarre who had lately returned from the West Indies for the second time) who created the Sammelband on behalf of his friend M. Desarnod, in the same year that all the tracts were published, namely 1774. Beaumarchais, the French inventor, musician, courtier, diplomat and playwright, is now best remembered as the author of The Barber of Seville and The Marriage of Figaro. He also deserves a place in legal history -- not only because he was a professional litigant, but also because he had considerable skill in cross-examination as well. See Robert A. Hendrickson, "Beaumarchais as Cross-Examiner" in: American Bar Association Journal, Vol. 52, No. 6 (June 1966), pp. 559-563. CONTENTS of the Sammelband, and the order that they are to appear, are given in a contemporary MS leaf, no doubt from Navarre to his binder, found at the end of the volume.
