This is a stunning set of six French books in faded "midnight/dark" blue tones. There are two very collectible travel guides in this stack, with a myriad of "pull out" detailed maps of the Auvergne and Cévennes regions of France, alongside some fabulous classic literature by Honoré de Balzac.

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:

Les Guides Bleus, Auvergne and Centre (1953 edition.) This book has a big "pull out" map inside the back cover. Exquisite in its detail and packed with information on these French regions it has many expanding map pages, that extend to double pages. It is a comprehensive guide, with town plans and full geographical information. Once you open it you will find it impossible to put down again!

Les Guides Bleus, Cévennes, Velay-Vivarais, Rougergue-Albigois, Gorges du Tarn, Languedoc Méditarranéen (1951 edition.) Another mesmerizing book, crammed full of map and plans. It also has a huge road map of the Cévennes region, inside the back cover. It has many, many, "pop out" maps too.

Géographie du département de la Haute-Vienne, Paul Joanne (1912 edition.) A lovely little guide to this French region with a large "pull out" map at the back.

Leçons de Français, Edmond Royer (1934 edition.) Lessons and exercises in French language, grammar, composition and conjugation for 11 - 14 year old children.

Louis Lambert, Honoré de Balzac (early 1900's edition.) Honoré de Balzac (20 May 1799 – 18 August 1850) was a French novelist and playwright. Louis Lambert is his 1832 novel. This book also has some of his other novels included; "Les Procrits", "Adieu", "Le Réqusitionnaire" and "El Verdugo".
