Browsing through boxes at Aigues Mortes's Saturday brocante*, I found this inventory book kept by a shopkeeper in the Herault in the year 1832. I haven't begun seriously deciphering the contents yet (Who owed him? He owed what amount of money to whom? Questions for which the answers only I would actually care to know.), I've just been enjoying his meticulous handwriting. Beautiful, isn't it?
