Administrative/Biographical history:

In 1769 Bruyard entered the Bureau of Trade, where he was trained by his father. In 1776-1777, he worked in Italy and Sicily. On 1 September 1780, Bruyard was appointed inspector of factories in Aachen and two years later (02-07-1782) he was appointed to a similar position in Paris. He lost his job after the Inspectorate was abolished following the revolution.


Scope and content/abstract:

This handwritten volume is concerned with the freedom of trade which has caused the disappearance and bankruptcy of many small businesses. Bruyard also alludes to the fact that the only reason French manufactures are still exported is due to the war in which England presently is engaged and which absorbs a lot of attention and financial resources. The author claims that once the English have their hands free, the French will soon find out that they have little resources in comparison with the English. In the inner margin of the first page is a note stating 'Remis M. de Montaran, le 9 Xbre (December) 1782.'
