PARIS. Rente Viagère de 300 Livres - Edit February 1724. black. No 572. Cat. Shakespeare CI1. After the John Law era, some investors had made a fortune, but the majority had lost heavily and many were ruined. Nevertheless the company survived, and made three issues of rentes in the eighteenth century. This contract &certificat belong to the first issue. In 1723 the crown granted certain privileges to the Company. Among these were the tax-farm of the exclusive right to sell tobacco and coffee, and also the right to hold national lotteries. In these, certain prizes were to be in cash, and others in rentes viagères, in the form of a tontine of 28.750 names. As a name died, one-half of its interests would accrue to survivors, the other half being cancelled. Numbers were drawn in a lottery to qualify for the increase due on account of deceased lenders. This process continued at least up to the 1760's. This piece is from the first issue of Compagnie des Indes rentes known to us, and like all other issues, is very rare. Payable from the tobacco and coffee monopolies. See also lot 509.
