Bound manuscript of "Traitté du peché originel" (Treatise on Original Sin) by Henri de Maillé, Marquis de Carman (73 p.). Stamped on the spine of the sleeve cover is: "Manuscrit écrit par Damoisselet" — likely a professional scribe. The quality of the text and ornamentation are exceptional, with numerous marginal references to Augustine, Seneca, Cicero and others. An additional annotation in Latin identifies the book as having at one time been part of the cathedral library at Lyon.
