What Our Customers Say...

Description

Limited Edition

Although it is commonly called a novel, it doesn't follow a standard novel form. Rather, it is a collection of loosely related stories, all set in the Latin Quarter of Paris in the 1840s, romanticizing bohemian life in a playful way. Most of the stories were originally published individually in a local literary magazine, Le Corsaire. Many of them were semi-autobiographical, featuring characters based on actual individuals who would have been familiar to some of the magazine's readers. In French. Number 824 of 1,000 limited copies.

Condition

In a half-morocco binding with marbled boards. Externally very smart. Internally firmly bound. Pages are mainly bright and clean, save for some foxing to the first and last few pages.

Very Good Indeed
