Le sentiment analysÃ© ou l'Ã©cole de l'adolescence - - 1806. 
Chez Janet Libraire, Paris 1806 - 1-16, 1-24, 17-32pp., + (12)ff. engraved illustrations. Title page also engraved. This miniature almanac includes calendar tables for the year 1806 and a list of eclipses, as well as twelve short educational poems. Each of the rhyming poems, consisting of three stanzas of eight lines each, seeks to instruct innocent growing children on how to behave as they enter adolescence. The calendar is bound, as usual, around the main text, with January through May before and June through December after. Bondy comments on a group of French almanacs, of which this title is a part: "Of particular rarity are some of the slightly larger volumes. published between 1790 and 1814 by Jubert, Janet, Marcilly or Le Fuel in Paris. They all have engraved titles and most of them contain twelve full-page plates executed with the greatest care and delicacy, representing elegant scenes of contemporary life. Collectors who succeed in finding any of these magnificent almanacs all of which are now exceedingly rare, must deem themselves very fortunate." Handsomely bound in gilt-tooled red morocco, and housed in a matching slipcase lined in light blue silk. A.e.g. Light wear and some oxidation to the gilt edges, else a fine copy of an "exceedingly rare" item. (Bondy, pp. 48-50). (2 5/8 by 1 3/4; 67x45mm). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
