A set of nine novels by Clément Vautel. They have serious "Shelf Appeal."
They are hardcover editions with wonderful, marbleized, covers and ribbed spines. Each one is stunning in its own right and together they make an incredible impact.
The patina on these books is outstanding, they are 100 years old and "aged to perfection", with yellowed pages for an instant "old library" effect.

Clémet Vautel (pseudonym of Clément Vautel) was a French journalist, historian, pamphleteer and novelist (born in Tournai, Belgium in 1876, he was naturalised French and died in Paris in 1954.)
