1 EMILE AUGUSTE MAURIN 1852 VILLE DE PARIS RARE VOTING CARD COMING SOON AFTER THE TROUBLES OF THE SECOND COMMUNE
France 1852 Manuscript Very Good Autograph
"SCRUTIN SUR LE PLEBISCITE SOUMIS AU PEUPLE FRANCAIS." Government voting document with manuscript entry by official indicating the voter, Emile August Maurin, Postal Agent, born 1819. This vote was mere days from Napoleon III being proclaimed Emperor. Quite significant this plebiscite given that the anti-parliamentary constitution instituted by Napoleon III on January 14, 1852 was largely a repetition of that of the year 1848. All executive power was entrusted to the emperor, who, as head of state, was solely responsible to the people. The people of the Empire, now powerless to exercise any of their rights, had to rely on the benevolence of the emperor. He was to nominate the members of the council of state, whose duty it was to prepare the laws, and of the senate, a body permanently established as a constituent part of the empire. One innovation was made, namely, that the Legislative Body was elected by universal suffrage, but it had no right of initiative, all laws being proposed by the executive power. This new political change was rapidly followed by the same consequence as had attended that of Brumaire. On December 2, 1852, France, still under the effect of the "Napoleonic virus", and the fear of anarchy, conferred almost unanimously by a plebiscite the supreme power, with the title of emperor, upon Napoleon III. Fantastic addition to any French history collection. Please note: I have another of the same type voting card for 1871. The named voter is Pierre Auguste Maurin. Perhaps a twin brother as this too shows a 1819 birthday.
