Acquest. s. m. Chose acquise, ce que l'on a acquis. Il a fait un bel acquest depuis peu. il a fait un nouvel acquest.
On dit proverbialement, qu'Il n'y a si bel acquest que de don, pour dire, qu'il n'y a point de bien plus legitimement, plus agreablement, plus seurement acquis que celuy qui est donné.
En stile de Pratique, Acquests au pluriel se dit proprement des biens tant meubles qu'immeubles qu'on a acquis. Cette femme n'est point en communauté, elle n'aura point de part aux acquests. il est permis à un homme de disposer de ses acquests. acquests & conquests. les droits sur les francs-fiefs & nouveaux acquests.
Acquest, signifie aussi, Avantage, profit, gain, Il n'y a pas grand acquest à vendre cette marchandise- là. vous aurez plus d'acquest de le payer que de plaider.
