A RARE SUITE OF PLATES RELATING TO THE NOTORIOUS AFFAIR WHICH INSPIRED THÉRÈSE PHILOSOPHE: AN ICON OF 18TH-CENTURY LIBERTINISM
. The trial which followed the alleged corruption of a parishioner by Girard was the scene of lurid and hysterical testimony, with Catherine accusing the Jesuit of witchcraft and \‘spiritual incest\’\’\’\’. Twelve of the jurors, one shy of majority, voted for Girard to be burned alive. Girard was acquitted, but the case captured the public imagination and featured in much writing into the 19th-century, with Girard the enduring target of anti-Jesuit barbs, and the archetype of ecclesiastical corruption. The title-page gives Paris as the place of publication, but this leaf is printed on paper watermarked with the arms of the city of Amsterdam suggesting that this may be a false imprint. WorldCat locates only one copy, at the Bibliothèque nationale de France, which lacks the title-page. AE and ABPC record only one copy at auction, probably the same defective copy which is now in the BnF. Dutel A-556.
