Title Registre Des Audiences du Marche Neuf de 1741 - 1747 A record of the fees, attendees and accounts for Alencon New Market
Stock Code 1967
Dates 1741
Published Alencon
Description A delightful record kept of transactions for the New Market at Alencon in Normandy. Much earlier vellum (written with a old hand - possibly Sixteenth Century or earlier) binding is wrapped around the book. This is roughly sewn around the text itself. To the inside is a paper label sewn to the inside cover. This is written on the blank rear of an earlier French coloured playing card of Hector (Jack of Diamonds in the French deck). The block of text is a number of gathers stitched together with metal pins. Each leaf has the tax stamp of the City of Alencon, and shows a duty paid of 1 Sol. 4 Denier. The accounts themselves are a tightly written and often scarcely legible hand (or number of hands). Most of the entries are signed - Many of them by someone called Legrin De La Fontaine - who was presumably a market official or clerk. Unpaginated but in the region of 250 leaves (500 pages).
Condition Many of the gathers are a little loose, and the volume is showing signs of age - as one would expect from a document used daily for several years. There are stains to some of the pages and a little damage - but not much. The binding is shaken, and the vellum is somewhat darkened, but overall in good condition.
