The Instltuto of France had Its in
ctptlon In 1S70, when there was found
ed In Paris by the French poet, An
tolne de Bnlf, a literary and musical
aociety, known ns the Academy of the
Valola. Charles IX. granted It letters
patent on Nov. 20, 1570, ns "The Acad
emy of Poetry and Music."' It had,
however, no stability. Attacked upon
every occasion and criticised by tta op
ponents, its members ceased to meet
after 1584. Almost half n century
passed before n revival took place.
For some time since the year 1029
a small circle of enthusiastic students
was wont to meet nt each otlier's borne
for tbe study ot French language and
literature. From year to year its mem
bership Increased, and in 1034 Cardinal
Itlchelleu proposed to the society to
have their private status changed Into
a public institution, with many rights
and privileges. Upon agreement by
the aociety It waa henceforth known
as "the French Academy," with a char
ter from Louis XIII. of January. 1035.
It consisted then of forty members
the "forty Immortals" and nt no time
and under no pressure whatsoever has
this number been Increased. London
