First edition of an uncommon book by the author and publisher, Louis Dubroca (b. 1757), who was a prominent apologist for the Revolution and for the Napoleonic Regime. The book is a series of anecdotes, arranged according to the quality of moral excellence ("Amour conjugal," "Piété filiale," "Tendress fraternelle," etc.), the common theme being the moderating influence of women upon men.
