This is a stunning set of four antiquarian French books in faded brown tones. Dating from the 1850's - 1950's, they are "aged to perfection" and will give you an instant "old library" effect.

The four books are all hardcover editions, distressed from years of genuine use, and some of the pages are delicate and loose:

The books are:

A Psalter, dating from 1854. This book, in Latin, is a volume containing the Book of Psalms (Psalterium), with other devotional material bound in as well, such as a liturgical calendar and litany of the Saints.

Théatre Choisi de Racine, L. Petit de Julleville (1910 edition.) A comprehensive guide to the writing of Jean Racine (22 December 1639 – 21 April 1699.) Racine was a French dramatist, one of the three great playwrights of 17th-century France, along with Molière and Corneille. In this book you will find all of his famous tragedies and comedies, such as Esther (1689), Phédre (1677), Les Plaideurs (1668), Iphigénie (1674), Andromaque (1667), Athalie (1691) to name but a few! The plays are reproduced, act by act, with notes and commentaries.

Les Sciences Naturelles, Brevet Supérieur. Ecoles normales (filles and garçons) deuxième année - Dr. G. Perrin et H. Coupin (1933 edition). This book is amazing, once you pick it up it's impossible to put down. It has wonderful illustrations and anatomical diagrams of plants. It covers everything from fossils & woolly mammoths to global weather patterns and rock formations - truly fascinating.

Arithmétique, Cours Supérieur et Classe de Fin d'Etudes - Ch. Pugibet, A. Adam et P. Gason (1954 edition.) A book full of fabulous old diagrams and illustrations of angles, spheres, cones and mathematical equations. Fractions, volumes, time, weights, measures and geometry all feature in this book. It was obviously once owned by a student named "G. (Gilbert). Faurent", as he has written his name in the front and across the page edges.

These four books have, over their long life, gathered pencilled scholarly notes, remarks, drawings and comments, on the pages, 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.

To display in a bundle, tied with twine, you will need a minimum space of 15cms/ 6" high x 20cms/ 7¾" long x 14cms/ 5½"deep.
They weigh 2.3kgs/ 5 lbs.
