Description

Lovely and decorative Antique French book with hand painted cover from 1858 called 'Josephine'. The label on the first page indicates that it was given in 1858 as a first prize in Grammar to 'Henriette Pelerin', by the schools' female headmaster 'La Directrice' . The cover is very decorative, a lovely blue, with a hand painted picture inserted in the cover. The book was approved by the arch bishop of Limoges. The cover is in vintage condition, the inside is still excellent. Great for craft projects or decoration. Found on an antique market in Ranes, Normandy, France.
