G Lentore was the pen name for Theodore Gosselin. Gosselin was a French historian and playwright. His main source of income was his articles in popular publications such as Le Figaro, Le Monde Illustre and Le Temps. His vast bibliography often deals with the French Revolution, specifically the Reign of Terror. His works were constructed from his research into primary documents from the era.

CONDITION

Uniformly bound in quarter calf and paper covered boards. Externally, generally smart with some heavy rubbing in places. Evidence of repair to the front joint/head of backstrip to Veilles Maisons Vieux Papiers III. Front hinges to Vielles Maisons I and Les Massacred de Septembre and Tournebut, slightly strained but firm. Loss to the front and rear board of Vielles Maisons I, II, III and IV, Marie Antoinette and Le Vrai Chevalier de Maison Rouge due to rubbing. Loss to front board of Le Marquis de La Rouerie due to rubbing as well as to the head of the backstrip. Loss to front board of Le Drame de Varennes and Les Noyades de Nantes due to rubbing. Severe loss to the front board of Tournebut at the joint due to rubbing with a small loss to the rear. Loss to the rear board of Paris Revolutionnaire an La Guillotine due to rubbing. Very small loss to the rear board of La Fille de Louis XVI, at the joint, due to rubbing. Cracks to the head of joints to La Guillotine and to the front joint of Les Noyades de Nantes and Le Marquis de La Rouerie. Vielles Maisons I, Les Massacres de Septembre, Tournebut and La Guillotine generally firmly bound though strained in places. Otherwise, all other volumes are firmly bound. Pages are slightly age toned due to paper used with instances of spotting throughout, somewhat heavier to the first and last few pages. Overall: GOOD.
