Set of three vintage French pamphlet books published by Larousse, Paris. The set includes J J Rousseau 'Confessions', Montesquieu 'Page Choisies' and Chateaubriand 'Genie du Christianisme'. Text is French.

The books have pretty purple and cream covers and all three have written inside the front cover Pierrette M Wach(?) Cambridge 1940. Who knows, perhaps Pierette was a student at Cambridge University in the 1940s? Pierrette is the female version of the French Pierre and interestingly, Cambridge didn't open it's full degrees to women until 1948. If only objects could talk - I wonder what tales these books would tell?

Measurements: 6 3/4" x 4 1/4" (17cm x 11cm)
Era: I can't see a publication date but the date inside each cover is 1940
Condition: Good. The edges have browned over time but the books are complete, with no rips or tears, and the covers are in good condition.
