Objet de Lux

From an old Cabinet. Cabinet is wonderful. Prefer offline to online, not because the online is not wonderful, but because the offline is even wonderfuller. Here’s an excerpt of this piece:

“Brilliant and passionate, as fun-loving as she was hard-working, “la divine Émilie” was both admired and loathed by her peers, stunned as they were by the nerve of an eighteenth-century female who was as capable of debating men on the laws of physics as she was of performing the role typically assigned to her gender. She left in her wake a series of lovers in the best tradition of intrigue among French royals—or rather among intellectuals, long before the Existentialists and the French avant-garde”
