Antique Blue Book Bundle. Shabby Chic Vintage Book Stack of French Books including a 150 Year Old French History Book. Antique Book Stack.
This is a stunning set of Five Antique French Books in Faded Blue Tones. They are 'Aged to Perfection' and will give you an instant 'Old Library' effect.
They look lovely tied up with twine and displayed on a coffee table, sideboard, bedside table or dresser. The covers have faded with time to subtle, dusky, soft blues and the pages are yellowed with age, with age spots.
This 'blue' book bundle is made up of mostly French, Antiquarian School Books, very collectible and increasingly hard to find. They are in genuine vintage condition, as you can see from the photos. They have been held and read by many, many people who have 'thumbed through' them, studied them, ear marked pages, loved, lost and cherished them and they have finally ended up here - looking for a new home and a new adventure. They have also gathered a few pencil marks and names inside the covers over the years. I've left them exactly as I found them because they're authentic.
Most importantly they have that 'old book smell' reminiscent of libraries and bookshops from a by-gone era - fabulously comforting.
The five books are all hard cover editions, they are distressed from years of genuine use and some of the pages are delicate and loose:
The titles are:
Un Crime d'Amour - Paul Bourget (1931 edition.) The cover of this novel has a beautiful 'marbleized' effect.
Histoire de France, cours moyen. certificat d'études - A. Aulard et A. Debidour (edition date unknown.) This book has a wonderful Art Nouveau style cover and is a guide to French history from the Gaule's to France's third republic in 1905.
Histoire de France et du Moyen Age, classe de troisième - V. Duruy (1865 edition, published by France's famous publishing house Librairie Hachette, Paris) This book is 150 years old! Its amazing. It covers France's history in the middle ages from the 5th to the 14th centuries. It has maps showing the empires of Charlemagne, the Arabs and the Crusades (1095 - 1270) and is impossible to put down once you start reading it!
Leçons de Morale, ecoles primaires supérieurs - Charles A. B. Der Halden (1936 edition.) Everything you need to know to be a good French citizen!
Chimie, classe de seconde - H. Pariselle et P. Gauthier (edition date unknown.) Everything you need to know to study chemistry. This book is packed full of formulas, diagrams and equations. This book also has lots of handwritten letters, calculations and studies tucked inside the pages from one of its previous studious owners. Taking them out doesn't feel right so I've left them nestled in between the pages as part of the books history.
If you wish to display the books in a bundle/stack with string then you would need a minimum space of 10cms high x 20cms long x 14cms deep. (4" x 8" x 5 ½")
