About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Chansons: Lyrics Copied Out by Gendron ...

Publisher: likely early 20th century, France

Binding: Paperback

Book Condition: Very Good+


French lyrics copied into a notebook, and charmingly illustrated. Wraps; 167 x 223 mm; pp. [2] (title-p., frontis.), 97 (hand-numbered), [39]; handwritten on lined paper in blue or black ink, with more than 50 drawings, in-text or full-page, in pencil and/or ink, most of them colored with pencil or gouache. Covers scuffed and worn. Some light dust-smuding throughout, and the occasional tape repair, but overall internally bright and clean. Includes lyrics for "La Vie a la Caserne," "Pouet Pouet," "Gitana," "Les Belles Meres," "Mimosette," "Le Jardin de Ma Cousine," "Seduction," and many others, copied out in tidy script. These standards are accompanied by adept, absolutely charming illustrations of very stylish men and (more often) woman, as well as the occasional pigeon -- so the volume offers not just a well turned-out collection of songs, but also a vibrant look at the costume of (it seems) the 1920s and 30s.
