Le droit et la plume : un ouvrage juridique à la fin de l’Ancien Régime : étude sur l’édition, le contenu et les coopérateurs du « Répertoire » de Joseph-Nicolas Guyot (1728-1816)

Abstract : This thesis proposes the study of a major legal work published at the end of the Ancien Régime: the Universal and Reasoned Directory of Jurisprudence Civil, Criminal, Canonical and Beneficial. It is a collective work that aims to compile all applicable law in the kingdom. As such, and considering its historicity almost immediate, this book is a valuable source for law historians and justifies, through its abundant use, special attention.Precisely, our work, which is limited to the first two editions (1775-1785), considers first of all the editorial adventure of the Directory, in its intellectual, legal but also commercial dimension. Thus, we place the book among its competitors, while explaining the modalities that preside over its creation. Our thesis is also interested in the norms that govern the publishing during the period studied, and particularly the application of the judgments of the Council of the king of 1777. Starting from a concrete example, the articulation of the rights conferred on the holder of a publishing privilege with the corporate monopoly of the booksellers-printers is exposed. Then, highlighting the different juridico-philosophical conceptions flush with the content is an essential concern in our work. Often referred to as a "classical" or even "traditionalist" work, the Directory contains many innovative aspects and expresses a polyphonic character assumed. Finally, in connection with the previous statement, the many collaborators of this encyclopedia of law are identified and their participation is quantified. In this perspective, we focus in particular to unveil the career of its editor and principal editor, Joseph-Nicolas Guyot, a former lawyer and magistrate Lorraine. Ultimately, the ultimate goal of this study is to provide an unpublished database for the many researchers who use the Directory
