Beautifully illustrated inside, also very interesting and decorative outside, the perfect handsome shelf filler!
Leather bound edges and corners, gilt lettering embossed below the writing, artfully painted front and back covers, the first and last pages decorated with a lattice design in continious form, Fleur De Lys decoration and the words Club Bibliophile de France making up the latticework. all in subtle earthy tones, very elegant indeed.
The edge reads: Alfred De Vigny, Servitude et Grandeur Militaires ( no illustrations), book 2 reads Ignacio Manuel Altamirano, Clemencia and book 3 is by Romulo Gallegos, Canaima.
Inside the printed script is strong, every chapter headed by a large lettered heading. There are some full page illustrations, period folk in period clothes.
Clemencia and Canaima play in Mexico and Venezuela, so have been translated, the translaters and illustrators are noted in the front.
The books don't seem to have been read a lot..
They were bound and printed in Paris, France, between 1952 and 1960.
Minimal scuffs, hardly any wear.
A great decorative prop or merely a pleasure to the eye...
