About This Item

Extremely rare volume of poetry and essays by the early 19th century French author, poet and literary figure, Delphine de Girardin née Gay. This small (4.5 in. x 2.75 in.) volume is over 180 years old and is in excellent condition. Quarter bound in green leather and marbled paper. The spine is embossed with gilt scrollwork, title and author. The hinge is tight and the pages slightly yellowed with age, but still in fine, readable condition. Red Silk bookmark is still attached and faded only on the surface outside the book. No internal markings, bookplates or tears to pages. A remarkably preserved book for its age! There are no other similar copies of this vintage for sale on the Web!

Un recueil de poèmes très rare de Delphine de Girardin née Gay, écrivaine, poétesse et personnalité littéraire française de la première moitié du 19ème siècle. Ce petit volume (11,4 cm X 6,9 cm) a plus de 180 ans d'âge est dans un état excellent, voire quasi-parfait. Demi-reliure avec cuir vert et papier marbré. Le dos montre en relief une dorure en volute ainsi que le nom et l'auteur du livre. La reliure est ferme et les pages ont légèrement jauni avec le temps, mais sont encore en excellent état et tout à fait lisibles. Un signet de soie rouge y demeure attaché et la couleur n'est fanée que dans la partie qui dépasse du livre. Les pages intérieures ne comportent aucune marque, déchirure ou ex-libris. Voici un livre dans un état de conservation remarquable compte tenu de son âge ! Il n'y a aucune autre copie comparable comportant cette date de publication en vente sur Internet !

All proceeds got to Benefit the Friends of the San Anselmo Library!
