Condition Report

The date 1790 appears on the title-page, to deceive the censorship of the time. In the wake of the Revolution, the order and morality restored in the nineteenth century persecute the works too free of the previous century, but at the same time maintain the nostalgia of an old libertine regime. Thus, in 1833 a leaflet was born with a floral language: “The Forty Art in forty ways or The practical science of the Daughters of the world”, presumably printed in Amsterdam in 1789. Each embrace is described in a very technical way, and can be sung on a well-known air at the time. This curious manual that includes popular actors such as a seamstress or pharmacist, but also the band-at-home and the virgins, is probably more fun than any learning.
