Une seconde partie concerne les legs aux gens de livrée, aux femmes et valets de chambre, à la femme de garde-robe, etc. Note de bas de page de la main du Marquis de Sade : "dite Mademoiselle de Charolais". On y joint un billet de notes, rédigé de la main de Sade, en vue de la publication de la correspondance de son père. Ce testament a été rédigé cinq jours avant la mort de Mademoiselle de Charolais, dont le décès survint le vendredi 7 avril 1758 à la suite de trois mois de maladie. La seconde partie du testament est datée du dimanche 2 avril 1758, sur la première est mentionnée la date du dimanche 12 avril 1758 : il s'agit bien sûr d'une date fautive. La totalité de cette copie a été rédigée de la main du Comte de Sade qui vécut avec Mademoiselle de Charolais à son château d'Athis-Mons à partir de 1750 jusqu'à la mort de cette dernière. Le jeune Comte de Sade, envoyé par son père à Paris aux alentours de 1720, eut pour protecteur Louis-Henri de Bourbon, Prince de Condé, dit Monsieur le Duc. Dès son arrivée, le jeune homme apprécie la vie de cour et « Chose rare, il plaît aux femmes sans se faire haïr des hommes : d'où le nombre de ses amis, au moins aussi élevé que celui de ses maîtresses. [...] M. de Sade ne se contente pas de conquêtes faciles ; les bourgeoises l'indiffèrent. Celles qu'il recherche - et conquiert le plus souvent - sont des femmes de cour, non seulement pourvues d'esprit et de beauté, mais parées encore d'un nom illustre, de crédit, d'influence ou de fortune, capables en un mot de servir ses intérêts et de le mettre bien en cour. » (Lever, Sade).

The whole as planned and designed by Malachy Postlethwayt, Esq;...

"The trade of Africa, as well to the French as the English, is the great foundation of their American commerce and navigation, as that alone supplies both nations with negroe labourers to cultivate their West India colonies for sugars, indigo, cocoa, cotton, pimento, and all other the estimable productions of the sugar colonies: and the commerce and navigation of America being the life and spirit of the French European commerce; if England strikes at the root of the French African trade, she, of course, cuts off the very stamina of the enemies trade and navigation to Europe as well as America" (p. ii). "The African slave trade must be controlled by Britain to deny supplies to the French colonies" (Hogg).

"Jesuit Father Ger—nimo de Ripalda (1536?-1618), a native of Spain, is best remembered for this catechism, which was reprinted innumerable times and translated into several languages such as this one in Nahuatl. The catechism was authorized by the Mexican Provincial Council of 1585 as the official version to be used throughout the Archdiocese and Dioceses of Mexico. Several translations were made, but this edition is considered to be the definitive one in the Nahuatl language. The work also contains questions and answers about doctrine by BartolomŽ Casta–o. Translator Ignacio de Paredes (1703-1770) was a renowned Jesuit translator and authority on the Nahuatl language. He is best known for his important Promptuario manual mexicano (1759), instructing priests and missionaries how to teach Indians in their native language of Nahuatl. The work includes an exhortation to Native Americans to read and learn this catechism. RipaldaÕs Catechismo was one of the basic three ÒCÕsÓ (Cartilla, Catechism, and Cato) used by bilingual teachers to teach children in New Spain. Many children, both Native and non-Native, were exposed only to reciting RipaldaÕs Catechism because their parents removed them from school before they learned to write" (D. Sloan). Nahuatl has been spoken in central Mexico since at least the seventh century CE. It was the language of the Aztecs who dominated what is now central Mexico during the Late Postclassic period of Mesoamerican history. During the centuries preceding the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire, the Aztecs had expanded to incorporate a large part of central Mexico, and its influence caused the variety of Nahuatl spoken by the residents of Tenochtitlan to become a prestige language in Mesoamerica. At the conquest, with the introduction of the Latin alphabet, Nahuatl also became a literary language, and many chronicles, grammars, works of poetry, administrative documents and codices were written in it during the 16th and 17th centuries. This early literary language based on the Tenochtitlan variety has been labeled Classical Nahuatl and is among the most studied and best-documented languages of America.

         Testament

      1758 - - Paris dimanche 2 avril 1758, 13,4x19,2cm et 11,7x17,8cm, 2 feuillets. - Testament de Louise-Anne de Bourbon-Condé dite Mademoiselle de Charolais, recopié de la main de Jean-Baptiste-François-Joseph, comte de Sade (et père du Marquis), dans lequel cette dernière fait de son neveu, Louis-François Joseph de Bourbon, prince de Conti, son légataire universel. Une seconde partie concerne les legs aux gens de livrée, aux femmes et valets de chambre, à la femme de garde-robe, etc. Note de bas de page de la main du Marquis de Sade : "dite Mademoiselle de Charolais". On y joint un billet de notes, rédigé de la main de Sade, en vue de la publication de la correspondance de son père. Ce testament a été rédigé cinq jours avant la mort de Mademoiselle de Charolais, dont le décès survint le vendredi 7 avril 1758 à la suite de trois mois de maladie. La seconde partie du testament est datée du dimanche 2 avril 1758, sur la première est mentionnée la date du dimanche 12 avril 1758 : il s'agit bien sûr d'une date fautive. La totalité de cette copie a été rédigée de la main du Comte de Sade qui vécut avec Mademoiselle de Charolais à son château d'Athis-Mons à partir de 1750 jusqu'à la mort de cette dernière. Le jeune Comte de Sade, envoyé par son père à Paris aux alentours de 1720, eut pour protecteur Louis-Henri de Bourbon, Prince de Condé, dit Monsieur le Duc. Dès son arrivée, le jeune homme apprécie la vie de cour et « Chose rare, il plaît aux femmes sans se faire haïr des hommes : d'où le nombre de ses amis, au moins aussi élevé que celui de ses maîtresses. [.] M. de Sade ne se contente pas de conquêtes faciles ; les bourgeoises l'indiffèrent. Celles qu'il recherche - et conquiert le plus souvent - sont des femmes de cour, non seulement pourvues d'esprit et de beauté, mais parées encore d'un nom illustre, de crédit, d'influence ou de fortune, capables en un mot de servir ses intérêts et de le mettre bien en cour. » (Lever, Sade). Parmi son tableau de chasse figure Mademoiselle de Charolais, de sept ans son aînée, sœur de son protecteur et alors maîtresse royale. Peu désireuse de se marier, elle préférera toute sa vie conserver le célibat et multipliera les aventures et les amants prestigieux. Elle fut notamment la favorite du Duc de Richelieu, mais aussi de Louis XV pour lequel elle recrutait de nombreuses maîtresses, écopant ainsi du sobriquet de « maquerelle royale ». La rencontre charnelle entre Mademoiselle de Charolais et le Comte de Sade eut lieu le 24 novembre 1725 alors que ce dernier était contraint de garder le lit à cause d'une entorse. Une lettre de Louise-Anne atteste de cette aventure naissante : « Le 24 novembre est le plus beau jour de ma vie si je suis rentrée en possession de mon royaume et de ma souveraineté, par les droits du lit où je vous ai prêté serment de fidélité. Je compte y avoir reçu le vôtre et je vis maintenant pour le plus joli roi du monde. » (Papiers de famille, p.20). La passion n'est pourtant pas réciproque et le volage Comte de Sade fait bientôt la rencontre de la Duchesse de la Trémoïlle. S'éloignant ainsi de Mademoiselle de Charolais, il lui écrit en guise de rupture : « J'ai regardé, Madame, les avances que vous m'avez faites, comme des agacements de votre esprit et point de votre cœur. Je n'avais point l'honneur de vous connaître, je ne vous devais rien, une entorse m'obligeait de garder ma chambre, j'y étais désœuvré, vos lettres étaient jolies, elles m'amusaient, je me suis flatté s'il était vrai que j'eus fait votre conquête, que vous me guérissiez d'une passion malheureuse qui m'occupe uniquement. » (op. cit. p.23). En 1752, le Comte de Sade est ruiné par son train de vie, il a envoyé le jeune Donatien au collège Louis-le-Grand et loge chez sa bonne amie Mademoiselle de Charolais au château d'Athis-Mons : « Je me suis retiré chez Mademoiselle, quoiqu'il soit cruel à mon âge de dépendre de quelqu'un, pour diminuer ma dépense. » (Lettre du Comte de Sade à son oncle le prévôt de L'Isle-sur-Sorgue, 1 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
