Bound Manuscripts [series]:
 
Journal Manuscrit of Claude-Charles Coster, vol.1 (Bound Ms. 1 Item 1)
Autograph manuscript in French. "Coster le jeune" was born in Nancy in 1741. He pursued a distinguished administrative career, especially under Necker. In 1790-91 he was chef de bureau at the Constituant Assembly, where both his brother Sigisbert, a chanoine de la cathedrale de Verdun, and his brother-in-law, Pierre-Joseph Prugnon, were deputies [a copy of the former's own journal is in the Archives nationales in Paris, C 26 dossier 13]. He kept this political diary in part to keep informed his protector, Marshall Prince of Beauvau-Craon, who was living in his château du Val in Saint-Germain-en-Laye most of the time. His information generally comes straight out of the minutes of the Assembly's meetings. A moderate royalist, Coster mentions the reactions of the public, which he calls "l'excecrable populace de Paris" or "les enrages"; he also reports different events and rumors of plots, arrestations, assassinations, and emigrations, that were the talk of the Assembly.
