[ECOLE TYPOGRAPHIQUE DES FEMMES]

THIBAUDEAU (Antoine-Clair)


History of terrorism in the Vienne department.

Paris, Chez le citoyen Maret, et chez la citoyenne Barbier, Maison Egalité, De l’imprimerie des femmes, sous les auspices de la Convention nationale, [An-II, 1793-1794].

In-8 (230 x 145 mm), bradel marbled paper boards (Modern binding).

Rare specimen of a joint printing by the Imprimerie des Femmes and the École typographique des Femmes, founded around 1791 in Paris.
Female workers learned the art of typography in C. Deltufo's printing shop. In the Petition à la Convention Nationale pour l'École Typographique des Femmes (1794), we read that men freed from their jobs at the printing works could thus fill the labor shortage in agriculture and the arts.

First edition of this work denouncing the Terror in the Poitiers region by Antoine-Clair Thibaudeau (1765-1854), deputy and future president of the Convention.
A precious testimony to the typographical history of women shortly after the Revolution, little studied and documented until now.
