Dictionaries and other reference books note the irony of this evolution. By the middle of the century, what had begun as a curiosity had become a flourishing trade, complete with specialist revues.

With everyone eager to invent or discover an unknown treasure, this was a fertile period for fakes and impostors. By the end of the century, the collections of rich amateurs were either taking a more serious turn, ending up in public institutions, or were heading in an altogether avant-garde direction. Arles avait acquis les fonds Sauret et Bonnement, Lyon une partie de la collection Artaud, etc.

Les Precieuses Ridicules by Larousse Kingfisher Chambers (Paperback / softback, 2008)
Curmer, Paris, , t. Moliere is considered to be one of the preeminent French dramatists and writers of comedies; his work continues to delight audiences today. With L'Ecole des Femmes The School for Wives Moliere broke with the farce tradition, and the play, about the role played by women in society and their preparation for it, is regarded by many as the first great seriocomic work of French literature.
In Tartuffe , Moliere invented one of his famous comic types, that of a religious hypocrite, a character so realistic that the king forbade public performance of the play for five years. Moliere gave psychological depth to his characters, engaging them in facial antics and slapstick comedy, but with an underlying pathos. Jean Baptiste Moliere died in Les Precieuses Ridicules.
