1927 Letters of The Marchioness De Sevigne Vol. 1

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


It's been said that this book was a integral part of understanding French culture in the 1600s. It is a series of letter from mother to daughter that show the praises, worries and interest of family life in the period.
It is also printed on the most beautiful, thick paper that has watermarks of crowns and hands when held to the light!
This is Vol. 1.

It was published by Spurr and Swift, in London, in 1927. Only 1000 copies of this edition were printed.
It was printed in Great Britain by T. and A. Constable Ltd. at the University Press, Edinburgh.
It includes an introduction by Madame Duclaux.

This book is in wonderful condition! The covers are clean, and the golden gilt is bright and unfaded. There is minor shelfwear, and the spine is sturdy and strong.
There is no writing throughout the book, though there is slight foxing on some of the pages, which also have a slight discolouration from age.
There are no loose pages, and the binding is tight.

Such a lovely buying experience. Great communication, very fast shipping and delivery. 'The Hat' plus feathers were difficult to send but arrived in perfect condition thanks to the secure, snug packaging.
The Hat is absolutely beautiful, exactly as described; I'm thrilled. US to UK transaction, thanks Brontide I'd happily do it all again, you are such a pleasure to do business with. Love your style. X
