Comments:

Has worm damage and signs of heavy use. Maker’s name written in ink on inside of back; otherwise unknown. Might be related to François Lejeune; or perhaps surname is illegible and “Le Jeune” indicates a son named after his father, e.g. Claude Remy “Le Vieux” (though his namesake would have been only 11 in 1745).
