About this Item

1839 1st English ed Paul & Virginia French Literature France Bernardin Novel Very Rare 1st edition of Paul et Virginie comp@$1,000 Paul et Virginie (or Paul and Virginia) is a novel by Jacques-Henri Bernardin de Saint-Pierre, first published in 1788. The novelís title characters are friends since birth who fall in love. The story is set on the island of Mauritius under French rule, then named Île de France. Written on the eve of the French Revolution, the novel is recognized as Bernardinís finest work. It records the fate of a child of nature corrupted by the artificial sentimentality of the French upper classes in the late eighteenth century. Jacques-Henri Bernardin de Saint-Pierre (1737 Ė 1814) was a French writer and botanist. He is best known for his 1788 novel Paul et Virginie, now largely forgotten, but in the 19th century a very popular childrenís book.
