Verses, by an Augustinian friar

Introduced by the following words: ‘De la critiqe amère: je citerè cette Strofe, adressée par [un] Augustin à un ministre réformé. page 389.’ First line: ‘Va, coquin, insolent, sans ame’.

Cited from De Paris, des mœurs, de la littérature, et de la philosophie, by J. B. S. Salgues (1813), pp. 388–9. The introductory words were rephrased.

Extract from Le Voyageur français, by the Abbé de la Porte, etc.

No heading. First words: ‘Note: Soù la minorité d’Achmet I.’ Last words: ‘effroaia-ble mélanje de barbarie, d’einsolence é de justice.’

See Joseph de la Porte, etc., Le Voyageur françois (1768 ed.), i. 391–2. The passage does not appear in the first edition, which was published in 1765.

‘L’Ether, ou l’Être Suprême Élementaire; Poeme Philozophike et Moral, à Priori. En Cinq Chants.’ By Martin De Bussy.

This is a virtually complete transcript of the book published under this title in 1796 (some publication details were omitted). The fourth canto was copied out twice. Dated at the end ‘Chaussegros-Vital. à Paris, au coin de la rue du Harlay, Boulevert de Baumarchais, ce 4 Juin à 8 heures, 15.mi du soir, 1831.’

‘Statuts de l’Ordre de l’Annonciation.’ By Joseph Grosset?

  • Crewe MS/41/**C**, pp. 1–3, 3a, 3b, 4–14
  • Part
  • [c. 1830]
  • Part of Crewe Manuscripts

Probably incomplete. The title is subscribed ‘J. G.’ and the name Joseph Grosset appears on p. 4. The text refers to the Order of the Rosy Cross, the mystical word ΑΒΡΑΣΑΧ (Abrasach), the ideas of Isaac Hollandus, and other terms of esoteric philosophy. There is no writing on pp. 3a and 3b, which were probably missed out by mistake.

Poems

On the spine is stamped ‘M.S. Poetry of the 18th Century’.
