Joannes Franciscus de la Cropte de Bourzac Bookplate (Ex Libris)


Joannes Franciscus de la Cropte de Bourzac, no designer, nd, approx. 7.4 by 11 cm. Used, very good with light rubbing; there are few tiny holes by the crown—too small for pin holes, and not typical insect damage—that can only be seen when held up to the light. Jean-François de La Cropte de Bourzac (1696-1766) was a French prelate of the eighteenth century. He was named abbot of the Abbey Saint-Martial of Limoges in 1729 and was vicar of Limoges when he was appointed bishop of Noyon in 1733. In 1745 de la Cropte was named abbot of Saint-Quentin-du-Mont, near Peronne, and in 1762 he was elected one of the presidents of the general assembly of the clergy in Paris. The plate, in full Catholic heraldry, topped with a galero (ecclesiastical hat), dates from 1733 to 1745 when de la Cropte was the Bishop of Noyon, France.
