Commentary


Ces jetons étaient distribués aux membres de l'Académie lors de leurs réunions du lundi, jeudi et samedi. On appelait " jetonniers " les académiciens remarqués pour leur assiduité aux réunions. En 1719, ce jeton a pu être entre les mains de Claude Gros de Boze. Celui-ci, né à Lyon le 28 janvier 1680, fut numismate et garde, en 1719, du Cabinet des antiques dont il classa la collection. Il fut reçu à l’Académie par André Dacier. Il mourut le 10 septembre 1753.

Historical background


FRENCH ACADEMY / ACADÉMIE FRANÇAISE

The French Academy was founded in 1635, under the reign of Louis XIII, by Cardinal Richelieu, with the aim of embellishing and perfecting the French language, symbol of the power of the King and the State. It had to be "perfect, clear and precise, capable of marrying the twists and turns of thought, of supplanting Latin and of finishing off lexical and stylistic misuse." Monitoring the language, and therefore the writings, was also a means of thwarting political intrigues... The Academy receives as its seal the motto "to immortality" with a crown of laurels, and the care of writing the Dictionary of the language French. Reading advice: MASSON F., "History of the French Academy, 1629-1793", Paris, 1912.
