Lettres De Mon Moulin. Alphonse Daudet.

Lettres De Mon Moulin

Geneve: Editions Pierre Cailler, 1947. 209 pages; very nicely printed in sepia and black; one of the series "Les Tresors de La Litterature Francaise"; done at the presses of Albert Kundig; short stories, French text by Alphonse Daudet (1840-1897) novelist, born at Nimes (Provence), remembered chiefly by delicately sentimental, humorous sketches of Provencal life, for a time a leading naturaliste writing with the care for documentation typical of the movement, but his work comes alive by his gift for vivid, impressionistic description and because his naturalism never excluded the warm, poetic, fantasy-loving side of his character; the old mill of the Lettres, at Fontvieille, near Arles, was restored and is now a Daudet museum. (Harvey, Oxford French Literature); approx.. 5 ¼" x 7 7/8" size; bound in full tan leather, gilt spine titles and simple line rules; marbled endpapers; light edge, tips wear to binding; in very good condition.
