Industrieausstellung 1798 in Paris, Great Industrial Exhibition

Die Pariser Ausstellung „Exposition Periodique des Produits et de l'Industrie" von 1798 gilt als erste moderne Wirtschafts- und Gewerbeausstellung.

 

 

1798

 

This exhibition lasted for three days, 19-21 September (modern style dates) on

the Champ de Mars, and showed the work of 110 exhibitors from Paris and the

Seine region. (Other documents indicate it was open 17-21 September, which was

the original intention, and others that it stayed open to 1 October.) François de

Neufchâteau, the Minister of the Interior, who organized the exhibition, did not

announce it early enough to attract a large number of exhibitors.

Exposition Publique des Produits de l’Industrie Française. Catalogue des produits industriels

qui ont été exposés au Champ-de-Mars pendant les trois derniers jours complémentaires

de l’an VI, avec les noms, départemens et demeures des artistes et manufacturies qui

ont concouru à l’exposition, suivi du procès-verbal du jury, etc. Paris: Imprimerie de la

République, Vendémiaire, an VII [1798]. 25p. F.548(1); another copy at F.426(28).

These tracts in the French Revolutionary tract series list the exhibitors who were

housed in 68 arcades around a square on the Champ de Mars. They included

manufacturers of clocks, jewellery, textiles and furniture. Prizewinners listed in the

jury’s report included the publishers Firmin Didot and Herhan, Breguet clocks,

Conté pencils and a Kutsch machine for measuring length.
