French nugget

Alida Esther Charlotte de Savignac (1796-1847) was an author and fashion correspondent for the Journal des Demoiselles in Paris. This is a fairly rare work published by Libraire de Gide Fils in Paris, probably in 1827. The lithographs are hand-colored, and the format was used for other titles by Savignac published by the same house. Only two copies are listed in OCLC—at Indiana University (Lilly Library, part of the Elisabeth Ball collection, see, and UCLA. Our copy’s slipcase and binding differs from that at IU, which is described as “Each vol. is in original printed pale blue glazed paper wrappers; all four in one purple patterned paper slipcase.”
