Title:
Poesies [manuscript] / de l'abbe du Cardonnoy, chanoine de Champeaux. Observations sur les medailles antiques / par Mr. Vacquette, ecuyer seigneur du Cardonnoy.
Abstract:
Two "volumes" of poetry by the otherwise unidentified abbot of Cardonnoy and canon of Champeaux, separated by a discussion of and reference lists concerning medals from the Roman Empire, by "Mr. Vacquette." Among the poems of the first "volume" are ones dedicated to the Queen (Marie Antoinette), church dignitaries, Louis XVI, Voltaire, and Vaquette d'Hermilly, who may be the author of the work on medals. The codex as a whole is dedicated to the bishop of Autun, and the second "volume" of poetry includes a few dialogues in verse and concludes with copies of letters from 1779 and 1780 complimenting the poetry.
