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.
