About this Item

Very handsome book, part of a larger set, but a stand-alone title in excellent condition -- even retains its scrace blue dustkacket. This shows two 1" closed tears to top front edge, but are hardly visible in brand new mylar. The dark blue boards have a moire appearance and the paste-on title box at spine is crisp and clean with no chips. Top edges are gilded and side pages rough-cut. Book is a limited edition of 1000 numbered copies of which this is #516. Books are illustrated with images printed on Japan paper. These are photogravures, but the portrait at frontis is in color. Though billed as Louis XV's memoits, they are actually taken from the memoirs of Madame Du Hausett, the lady's maid to Madame Du Pompadour. Very accessible to the modern reader. Six illustratiosn and 283 pages. NO DATE. Bookseller Inventory # 27256

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
