About this Item

Scarce, with no copies located on OCLC. With the unusual format of essentially being two periodicals issued in conjunction with one another, one directed at the children, the other, at the parents. (Think teacher's manual and student's text as a rough corollary.) Although periodical, no other copy found of this or any other issue of this French publication directed at children. 4to. (30 by 20 cm.) The primary interest for most would be the hand-colored two paged plates. While the coloring is not of a high level, the results are most charming, with the showstopper being the plate, "Les Fleurs". Other plate subjects include railroads, ships, hemp production and its products, glassmaking, vegetables, the army (military costume), pig husbandry and its products, weights and measures, mules and their products, dogs. Besides articles that accompany these plates, there are also songs with musical notation interspersed. Large 4to, 12 by 8 inches, 31 by 20 cm. 192, 96, [4] pp. Moderate foxing throughout. The plates are less foxed but heavily toned. The joints have heavy rubbing, and the leather is scuffed. Bookseller Inventory # 002181

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
