An antique French religious missel prayer book published in 1895 with a leather cover with faded gilding . Inside it is entitled "paroissien romain" and has beautiful gilt edged pages with lovely illuminated borders. The interior of the cover is a rich dark brown color with gilding (see photo 5)

543 pages in length including prayers for every Sunday and for the principal events of the year.
It was seen and approved by Guillaume-Rene Card. Meignan, archeveque de Tours on 23 March 1894. Editors Alfred Mame & son.

It is in rather shabby condition, a bit scratched and battered. The gilding is rubbed, the corners and edges of the cover are worn, there is foxing and grubby marks on many of the pages. It has clearly been well used in its life, who knows how many people have used this book at their first communions?

Dimensions: 5.2 inches (13cm) high and 3.7 inches wide (9.5cm)

I am happy to combine shipping where feasible, please just convo me for a price.

Frequently asked questions about Histoires

I am open to a layaway plan for more expensive items with a combined value of over $100 (including shipping). This way you can split your payments over a period of time between 1 and 3 months. We will agree the payments at the beginning and then your first payment reserves your item.

Please note that after you begin your payments I am unable to refund you or cancel the transaction as the item is reserved for you and unavailable for sale to anyone else. The item will stay on reserve until you finish your final payment.
I will consider offers on single or multiple purchases on any of my items. It's always worth asking me!

Don't forget that combining shipping on multiple purchases delivered to the same address can give significant savings.
The quickest and most reliable shipping I offer is using the Colissimo service. Shipping times with Colissimo are 5 - 8 working days from dispatch to delivery. If you want to add this service to your order please purchase the Colissimo upgrade.

If you want a quotation for a quicker service please contact me before your purchase as these services are very expensive.
Please always contact me via Etsy conversations, this way I can link your message easily to your order.

Once you have ordered, please continue to check your Etsy conversations, just in case I need any further information (such as a contact phone number) in order to ship your item.
Your right to cancel starts when you place your order and ends 14 days from the day you receive it. To cancel an order Histoires must be notified either via Etsy message or by email. For EU buyers, a link to a withdrawal form will be included in your receipt email. You are welcome, but not required, to use this form.

Once your return is authorized, you have 14 days to send the goods back. I recommend you send it with a proof of return, such as a tracking number. I will send the refund within 14 days of receiving the returned item via the original method of payment.
I will combine shipping on multiple purchases wherever possible.

I can combine shipping with items in my vintage sewing supplies shop, Couturesse.
https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/Couturesse

Please contact me if you want to purchase from both shops and I will set up a custom listing.

If you want an exact price for shipping on your order please contact me before you buy so that I can set up a custom listing for all the items you want with the correct shipping charge.

Please note that it is not always possible to combine shipping on large / heavy / fragile items as the economical La Poste service has an upper limit of 2kg. It may actually be cheaper to send 2 or more separate parcels if the items are very heavy.
Yes! I am happy to reserve items for up to a maximum of 1 month. If you would like to reserve an item I will ask you to pay 10% deposit.
Most of the items in my shop can be borrowed, please contact me to find out if the item you are interested in is included.

I am happy to loan items for film shoots, television shows, photo shoots, shop openings, weddings and corporate events. The terms of the loan are negotiable but I usually ask for full payment for the item and then refund 50% upon return of the item(s) to me within a year.

Obviously items need to be returned in the condition they were sent out in i.e. in the condition stated in the original listing. Customers will be responsible for initial and return transit costs and any damage incurred whilst in use or in return transit.

Sorry I will not usually agree to loan items of clothing or patterns.
