Abstract En

Marie-Claire Grassi : Two nobles' budgets in Provence. A comparative analysis of budgets is always difficult, owing to differences in headings and in the numbers of individuals concerned. Nevertheless, two 18th-century documents — the budget of a counsellor in the Aix-en-Provence Parlement and that of a country gentleman — give some interesting results. The town budget is largely devoted to the ostentatious side of daily life (upkeep of the house, clothes) while food, essentially meat, is modest. The country budget, burdened with expenses and the upkeep of the land, allows for a richer and more varied diet. This example would perhaps indicate that good food was a compensation for the rural gentry.
