Antique French Blue Book Bundle. French School Books and Reference Books. Books for Shelf Styling, Photo & Film Props and Interior Design.

by Tiggy and Pip

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. One of these books is 163 years old and will give your bookshelves added French Chic!

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 blues and the pages are yellowed with age, with age spots.

This 'blue' book bundle is made up of French, Antiquarian Books and 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:

La Première Année de Grammaire, cours moyen. Théorie, 350 exercises. Rédaction et élocution - Larive & Fleury (1900 edition.) An amazing book, packed full of language exercises, analysis and verb conjugations.

La Deuxième Année de Grammaire, cours supérieur. Orthographe, Rédaction, Littérature - Larive & Fleury (1898 edition.) Another book packed full of language composition, propositions and verbs conjugations.

Arithmétique, Cours Moyen, 1èr et 2mè années - M. Royer et P. Court (1954 edition.) A book full of fabulous old diagrams and illustrations of angles, spheres, cones and mathematical equations.

Avec l'Oncle Emile à Travers La France, livre de lecture courante pour cours moyen et le cours supérieur - G. Eisenmenger et A. Lenel (1927 edition.) A story book of travels around France.

Oeuvres Poétiques de Boileau Despréaux (1855 edition.) This book was published by France's famous Parisian publisher 'Librairie Hachette'. A book of works from the Famous French poet and critic Nicolas Boileau-Despréaux (1 November 1636 – 13 March 1711.)

If you wish to display the books in a bundle/stack with string (like the photos) then you would need a minimum space of 14cms high x 19cms long x 10cms deep. (5½" x 7½" x 4")
