Pretty flowered alphabet book. Decorated... - Lot 73 - Ader
Pretty flowered alphabet book. Decorated with a large number of animals and the easiest words to spell. Bellavoine, bookseller, Quai des Augustins, N° 37. Paris. [Circa 1825]. (7,3 x 5,3 cm). 26/26 engraved cards, 25 of them hand-colored, square corners, mute spines: publisher's hardback slipcase, with cover, covered with pink paper, engraved and colored image, bearing the title and a young couple in a floral frame, applied to the first side. Delicate and rare set of alphabet cards. One engraved title card and twenty-five etched and hand-colored alphabet cards. A large initial made of flowers and foliage occupies almost half of the card, the rest is illustrated with an animal, on a green grass background, whose name is placed at the foot. Perfectly preserved and complete. Minor crack on the edge of the original box cover. The cards were formerly applied on a board, hence a small trace on the reverse.
