La Religieuse. Paris, Buisson, An Cinquième [1796]. In-8 (195 x 121 mm) de 2 ff.n.ch., 411 pp. Original edition of this novel, completed in 1780 and published posthumously in 1796. Begun around 1760, the work is based on the real facts of a nun of the abbey of Longchamp named Marguerite Delamarre. The latter had made a name for herself in the literary salons of 1758 for having asked the justice system to release her from her involuntary confinement, imposed by her parents. The Religious is a sharp criticism of the religious institutions of the time. Provenance: Claude-Meriadec Pierret Chanterennes (ex-libris) - René Rouzaud (monogrammed ex-libris followed by the indication 'La Goulante'). Friends since 1951, René Rouzaud was the lyricist of Édith Piaf whose 'La Goulante du pauvre Jean' toured the world in 1954. Adams, Diderot, RC1; Tchemerzine-Scheler, II, 969.
