15. [ALMANACH] - [ESTIENNE (Robert)]. Strennae of Virtue, for the year 1789, containing the actions of charity, courage, humanity, &c. that took place during the year 1788. Paris, Savoye, 1789, in-12, [20]-172 pp., marbled fawn calf, smooth spine decorated, triple gilt fillet on covers, single gilt fillet on cuts, marbled edges (contemporary binding). This small almanac, a collection of edifying features, had been published every year since 1780. The year 1789 ushered in a new phase, one in which the traits of private charity gave way to those of political courage and social virtues, more in tune with the times.
