Reunion of two illustrated and colored primers.
The first one begins with six pages of four stenciled animal engravings arranged alphabetically. From Donkey to Zebra. Fourteen lessons follow: upper and lower case alphabets, syllables with A, E, I, O, U, accents, diphthongs and joining several consonants.
The second title includes twelve pages of two illustrations and a last page for the Z of sable, engraved and colored with stencil. A for Apricot tree, Bishop, Rifle, Racket [Game of Shuttlecock], Xylography, etc.
Rare meeting. Only two copies of the first volume are referenced in libraries.
Loose stitching with reinforcement on the bottom of some double pages. A tear on the paper of the second cover reveals a romantic light blue binding.
