Leather Books -Works of Daudet- Champrosay Edition
Little, Brown & Co: 1899. Very good condition especially for antique leather bound books. They have been well maintained.

The other book collections seen are listed separately. These 20 books measure 6" X 8 3/4" and are 1 1/2" thick. Minimal wear on the binding.
