[Dauphiné]. Lot of 3 very rare 18th century brochures on the beginning of the revolution in Dauphiné. 1/ [HÉLIE (Jean-Baptiste-Amédée)]. Procès-verbal des derniers États Généraux tenus aux Enfers, où se trouvent les plaidoyers de l'évêque de Grenoble et de Judas. Dedicated to the Clergy and Nobility of France, by the Archbishop of Embrun. S.l., Imprimerie Royale des Enfers, 1789. One volume in-8 full modern hardback. (2)-91 pp. Rare first edition. Violent and scandalous pamphlet against the bishop of Grenoble, Marie-Anne-Hippolyte Hay de Bonteville, whose morals left much to be desired. A spy for Loménie de Brienne during the events of 1788, he joined the patriot party when the minister fell. "He eventually lost his head and committed suicide on October 6, 1788." (Jean, Les évêques et archevêques de France depuis 1682 jusqu'à 1801, p. 483). This is the first and only example of a bishop committing suicide under the Ancien Régime. The pamphlet, attributed to Hélie, parish priest of Saint-Hugues, appeared in January 1789. 2/ (Revolution).

Coinde at the head of 150 young men delivered the Chartreuse de Salettes. 80 villains were killed and 60 arrested, etc.". 3/ Les Incendiaires du Dauphiné, or the enemies of the great. August 8, 1789.
