Nogaret was 1st Clerk of the King's House Ministry and later worked for the Dept. of the Interior. He became a prolific writer of poetry and satirical novels. His 1790 novel Le Miroir de Evenmens Actuels, ou La Belle au Plus Offrant (The Looking Glass of Actuality, or Beauty to the Highest Bidder: A Two-faced Tale) is a story about an inventor named Frankenstein who builds an artificial man. It may have influenced Mary Shelley, who 28 years later published Frankenstein.

Signed boldly by Nogaret.

Fold line from head to tail with slight soiling.
