Les confessions d'un ecolier, recueillies et mises en ordre par M. Alexandre de Saillet, maitre de pension. Illustrations de Victor Adam.
Paris and Rio de Janeiro: Belin Leprieur et Morizot, 1848 - An important and rare juvenile title by Alexandre de Saillet, who ranks among the most important children's authors of 19th century France. In this book, Saillet pretends to be editing the anonymous confessions of a real schoolboy. Illustrated with a full-page frontispiece lithograph and eleven additional charming full-page lithographs by VICTOR ADAM. In this copy, all twelve of these plates are DELICATELY COLORED BY A CONTEMPORARY HAND. Large 8vo. Attractively bound in contemporary quarter calf and boards, spine gilt. Very light wear to binding. Text pages slightly darkened (but not acidic or fragile) due to kind of paper used, but the plates are on far better paper and are thus fine and bright, with only some faint traces of marginal foxing. Not in Gumuchian, who devotes a whole section to Saillet. An excellent copy of a rare book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
