   Poster consisting of: pastedown 298:200 mm., (dated 1891), 525:287 mm. (not dated), usual age staining, several tears in margins.
   Document about the Jewish merchant Jacob Treves, awarded by the Mayor of the city of Nice in recognition of the important role he played in the 1792 events. It is mounted on a bigger paper sheet together with the explanation in French of the document and the life of Jacob and his family.

Treves, a ramified family which produced scores of scholars, rabbis, and communal workers. It is usually assumed that the family's origins were in Troyes, France, Rashi 's birthplace, from where it spread throughout Italy and Germany. Others hold that it came from Treviso near Venice, Italy, in the 14th century, while a third opinion is that it originated in Trier (Germany), called Trèves in French. In France members of the family were called Triverzans and in Germany, Drifzan. Branches of the family spread through the different countries of Europe from the 14th to the 20th centuries. From the original family there afterward branched off the Trefouse, Dreyfuss, and Tribas families.
