French Leather Bound Books, Letters from Madame de Sevigne, Her Daughter and Friends, by Charles Nodier, Paris, 1838
We have a two volume set of letters from Madame de Sevigne bound in 3/4 brown leather with gold tooling on the edges of the covers. The spine has five raised ridges, and decorated with two maroon text blocks with gold letters, as well gold designs in the other spine blocks.
The books measure 7 inches by 10 1/4 inches. The covers are in very good condition. The spines are strong. There is some foxing on some of the front and end pages in each volume. Marbleized paper is used on the end pages, and the edge of the text blocks. The text blocks are complete and well bound.
This is wonderful two-volume set of letters written 15th century England by an outstanding writer of the day.
