PARIS. Contrat + Quittance de 300 Livres (reserve copy). black on vellum. No 23. The vellum copies of French rentes are believed to be the copy retained by the issuing office. They are much rarer than the paper contracts, usually with vellum receipt, issued to the investor. The content is much the same, except that the text of the vellum quittance (usually separate, but tied with string into the paper contract) is here printed on the end of the contract. Shakespeare ref. 434 thus part of a life rente totine issue of 315.000 Livres. First time seen by us.
