DE BRUNHOFF, Jean (author and illustrator). Les Vacances de Zéphir. Paris; Librairie Hachette. 1936.
Folio. Original yellow-backed pictorial boards, yellow elephant endpapers; pp. [ii], 3-31 + ; with double-, full- and half-page plates coloured illustrations throughout alongside text in calligraphic font; externally a remarkable copy, and near fine, with only slight abrasion to forecorners of board; internally crisp and fresh throughout with 2 small, and very unobtrusive, sello tabs to inner upper cover and 3 to lower inner cover, without ownership marks or inscriptions.
First edition, as published in Paris. Whereas the Babar series usually circles around the title character, the elephant Babar, here in Les Vacances de Zephir the action focuses on his mischievous companion, the monkey Zephir.
