Antique French Light Blue Book Bundle. Shabby Chic Vintage Book Stack of French School Books. Books for Decoration. Instant 'Library Effect'
This is a stunning set of Six Antique French Books in Faded Blue Tones. They are 'Aged to Perfection' and will give you an instant 'Old Library' effect, 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, soft turquoise, 'aqua' blues and the pages are yellowed with age, with age spots.
This 'light blue' book bundle is made up of French 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 six 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 Dissertation Française, 120 plans et explications de textes et de pensées. Résume Aidé-Mémooire, class de première. Baccalauréat - 1ere Partie. - R. Bouviollle. 1930 edition - Published by France's Famous Parisian publishing house 'Librarie Hachette.' It contains notes on the works of Corneille, Rousseau, Voltaire, Molière and Victor Hugo, to name but a few!
Le Français au Brevet Supérieur illustré (1914 - 1917) - M et Mme P. Crouzet. (1915 edition). This book contains plays and notes from all of France's famous writers, Racine, La Fontaine, Voltaire, Rousseau, Hugo, Molière and more.
Arithemetique et Dessin Géométrique - T.H. Leconte, J. Itard et G. Ferdinand. (1943 edition) This book has a wonderful Art Deco style cover and is packed full of fabulous old diagrams and illustrations of angles, spheres, cones and mathematical equations.
Recuiel de Problèmes - A. Lonchampt (1876 edition) This book is seriously old and the pages are all loose but it is complete.
Les Sciences Naturelles, Brevet Supérieur. Ecoles normales (filles and garçons) deuxième année - Dr. G. Perrin et H. Coupin (1918 edition). this book is amazing, once you pick it up it's impossible to put down. It has wonderful illustrations of the workings of the human body, anatomical diagrams. Drawings of fish, insects and everything from fossils to woolly mammouths - truly fascinating.
Eléments d'Electricité Industrielle - L. Houllevigue et H. Bizouard (1936 edition). How electricity works!
If you wish to display the books in a bundle/stack with string (like the photos) then you would need a minimum space of 15cms high x 19cms long x 13cms deep. (6" x 7½" x 5")
If you choose to stand them up (like a normal library shelf) then you need 19cms high x 15cms long and 13cms deep. (7½" x 6"x 5")
The more book bundles I compile the more difficult it gets to part with them as each set is so steeped in history and life that they 'feel' alive to me.
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).
Thank you for looking and I hope you enjoy seeing these books as much as I have enjoyed finding them.
