[ABC]. JOB (illustrator). Jules LE MAITRE (author). ABC, Petits Contes. Tours, Maison Mame. .
4to. Original red cloth-backed pictorial boards brightly printed in colours; pp. [viii], 9-54; chromolithograph illustrations throughout shadowing and decorating the text; small, and neat, printed book label to inner upper board, light abrasions to edges and corners, and a little mild toning and rubbing, but an excellent copy, internally crisp and clean throughout.
Early edition of a beautiful alphabet with text in French. Each letter is represented by a word, followed by a short tale incorporating the noun. Job's delicately and finely printed colour illustrations, which often form a background to the printed text, are delightful.
