This booklet "The big confounders drunk to work and rabid to do nothing" was certainly printed at Jean Oursel's Rouen in 1735, saying "with permission", but the text is resolutely political, claiming the right to laziness in the form of allegories, then turns to tale with the description of a wonderful island where food grows alone and throws in the mouth, where clothes grow on trees, fountains make wines and music makes a year pass like a day. It is completed by two lists: value of gold and value of money in the Abbey and a three-year lease of a goat! Small plate in-12 (about 14 X 8 cm) 22 pages later bound in two sheets of paper, the whole having been gnawed back (not by a book rat!) Without harming the text. Do not hesitate to ask for photos or additional information by mail or phone.
