Name of creator
Henri de Maillé, marquis de Carman, was a French nobleman who flourished in the late 17th century. In 1674 he married Marie Anne du Puy de Murinées; their only child, Donatien, was the maternal grandfather and namesake of Donatien Alphonse François — better known by his title, the Marquis de Sade.
The book was part of the collection of Barry Brown. Prior to this, an additional annotation in Latin identifies the book as having at one time been part of the cathedral library at Lyon.
Scope and content
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.
