Histoire de Sibylle;
- Paris - Michel Levy Freres 1876 - A uniformly bound selection of Feuillet's works with Histoire de Sibylle (new edition); Les Amours de Philippe (eighth edition) and Le Roman D'un Jeune Homme Pauvre (new edition). In three volumes. Octave Feuillet (1821 -1890) was a French novelist and dramatist. Acclaimed works of his are La Petite Comtesse (1857), Dalila (1857), and the popular Le Roman d'un Jeune Homme Pauvre (1858) and in 1862 he achieved a great success with Sibylle. Feuillet holds a place midway between the romanticists and the realists. He is renowned for his 'distinguished and lucid portraiture of life,' depictions of female characters, analyses of characters' psychologies and feelings, and his excellent, reserved but witty prose style. He was elected to the French Academy in 1862, and in 1868 he was made librarian of Fontainebleau palace, where he had to reside for a month or two in each year. With ink inscriptions to front blank to all volumes. With an advertisement for Oeuvres Completes d'Octave Feuillet de l'Academie Francais also published by Levy to front of each volume. Condition: In quarter morocco bindings with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, generally smart but with slight rubbing to boards and wear to extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright but with slight scattered foxing and some slight marginal tidemarks. With the odd, small closed tear. Overall: VERY GOOD [Attributes: Hard Cover]
