Antique French Book Bundle. Shabby Chic Vintage Book Stack of French School Books. Instant 'Library Effect'. Ideal Boho Wedding Decoration.

by Tiggy and Pip

This is a stunning set of Seven Antique French Books in Faded Dark Green Tones. They are 'Aged to Perfection' and will give you an instant 'Old Library' effect and 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, soft bluey/green tones and the pages are yellowed with age, with age spots.

This 'green' book bundle is made up of 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 seven 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:

Grand Coeurs, Livre de lecture pour toutes les écoles - Ed. De Amicis (edition date unknown.)

Grammaire Française, cours moyen - J. Calvet & C. Chompret (1933 edition.) A book of lessons on pronunciation, syllables and propositions.

La Grammaire Nouvelle et le Français au Cours Elémentaire (classes de dixième et neuvième) - A. Souche (1932 edition.) An amazing book, packed full of language lessons and exercises, analysis and verb conjugations.

Les Textes Français XVIIIe Siecle, classes de troisième, seconde et première - J.R Chevaillier et P. Audiat (1927 edition.) All the 18th century authors and their works are packed into this book. Sections on Jean-Jaques Rousseau, Diderot, Voltaire and more.

Le Textes Français XIXe Siecle, classes de troisième, seconde et première - J.R Chevaillier et P. Audiat (1927 edition.) A wonderful book with all the famous French 19th century authors and their work, such as Victor Hugo, Chateaubriand, Lamartine, Alfred de Vigny, Balzac and Alfonse Daudet, to name but a few!

Cours de Langue Française, grammaire et exercises - C. Maquet et L. Flot (1920 edition). A fascinating book packed full of vocabulary, sentence construction and verb conjugations.

Pour Bien Lire, cours moyen ,cours supérieur. Certificat d'études primaires - H. Pomot, H. Besseige et A. Fourot (edition date unknown)

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 20cms long x 15cms deep. (5½" x 7¾" x 6")

As these books are quite weighty, in this instance you could buy several items for the same postage price. I will reimburse the overages on postage. Postage costs are the same price from 2kgs - 5kgs (4½ to 11 lbs).
