An enormous pack of 150+ antique, French, book pages. The oldest pages in this bundle are from 1811, the rest range from 1821, 1843 and 1881 to 1936.
They have all aged naturally and this has created a beautiful range of shades from antique white through ivory and beige to sepia.
The patina on these pages is amazing. The paper feels old and "time worn". Some of these pages are "fluffy" with irregular edges, they are "aged to perfection" and are in genuine antique condition, as you can see from the photos, they have "age spots" and edge discoloration which adds to their charm and authenticity. They have rough edges along their spines.
Most of these sheets have text/print on both sides.
