‎Observations de la Société Royale d'Agriculture sur la question suivant, qui lui a été proposée par le Comité d'Agriculture & de Commerce de l'Assemblée Nationale. L'usage des domaines congéables est-il utile ou non au progrès de l'agriculture? Rédigées par MM. Abeille, l'Abbé Le Febvre & l'Abbé Tessier. Lues le dix-sept Mars 1791.‎

‎No place, (1791). (2), 64 pp. 8vo. Modern boards. Musset-Pathay 1414; INED 8; Kress S.5337; not in Goldsmiths; not in Mattioli. First edition. Detailed definition of the 'domaine congéable', its usages and customes in Bretagne where they have survived. Abeille demontrates with the use of the 'Coutume de Bretagne' that the farmers with a 'domaine congéable' were doing well and contributed to the prospering of agriculture and the population. Abeille concludes that this system of 'withdrawable property' is favorable to the multiplication of property and that this farming-system is by consequence contributing to the progress of agriculture.A 'domaine congéable' was the system whereby land was leased for a period of usually nine years. If the contract was not renewed the farmer had a right to be reimburesed for all that he had constructed, improved etc. The advantage of the system was that the farmer benefitted from his work and the improvements he introduced on the land he had leased. Nevertheless, the insecurity of the system caused many complaints and these were clearly present and voiced in the cahiers of 1789. The system survived principally in the 'Basse Bretagne.' ‎
