Description
Émile De La Bédollière / Lorentz - Histoire De La Mère Michel Et De Son Chat - 1878
Bindings, Children's books - Quantity: 1 - Book

Very good copy in its polychrome binding by Lenègre, plate by A. Souze. All edges gilded.

Charming tale for children published in the Petite Bibliothèque blanche, a collection begun by Hetzel in 1878.

Very well preserved copy, despite the slightly discoloured spine, binding in excellent condition. Fresh and clean inside, meticulously printed on high-quality very white paper.


Émile De La Bédollière ; Illustrations by Lorentz. Histoire De La Mère Michel Et De Son Chat / J. Hetzel (Paris, 1878) octavo, 19x14, 107 pp

The purpose of this collection was to offer quality works (a good text, lovely
illustrations), thus betting on the fact that readers would prefer these excellent books “over
flat books without merit that are only accepted for their cheap price” (dixit Hetzel when he
presented this new collection in the Magasin d’Education on 15 December 1878). La Petite
Bibliothèque Blanche came in two forms: paperback and hardcover.
