Antique legal document from France dated 1872. This old document is completely hand written, and on the first page especially, contains many flourishes. I have to say that I find it particularly hard to read! The last page contains a list of charges in the margin, adding up to 9.90 francs (see 3rd and 4th photos)

The writing is full of flourishes as mentioned and covers 19 sides of paper (that is 10 pages). Each page measures 8¼ins (21cm) wide and 11¾ins (29.5cm) high. The rest of the document is in good condition for its age - slightly more yellow than the photos show and the front and back pages are quite dirty. There is little creasing but this does not detract from the document. It is bound together only at the top.

What a wonderful piece of history this is, so beautifully written. Look out for lots more old documents from the 19th century, or contact me if you can't wait that long!

If you have any questions please convo me.
