#55 La Rose à douze feuilles. Orné de douze vignettes.  Paris: Marcilly, 1842. $265. SOLD

Dear Miniature Book Aficionado,

The French were particularly successful in publishing beautifully illustrated and finely produced miniature books. La Rose a douze feuilles is an excellent example with superb printing and finely engraved plates by Firmin Didot Freres.  The front cover is blind embossed with a set-in engraving of a Russian lady and child.   Each of its 12 chapters is preceded by an equally exquisite illustration in a similar ornate border.  The chapters feature various exotic lands, their customs and costumes – China, India, Constantinople, Algeria, plus 8 others.  WorldCat lists only one copy of this book, at The Bibliothèque nationale de France in Paris.

Additional notable offerings in Catalog 82 are:

  • #4 Pirates – A pop-up book by Barbara J. Raheb.  SOLD
  • #16 Mystery of the Magic Box – designed by Ed Hutchins.  SOLD
  • #18 Nicodemus Dodge – one of only 26 deluxe copies by Ash Ranch Press.
  • #36 Maximes et reflexions morales – rare; printed in Didot’s tiny 2.5 pt. type.
  • #37 and #38 Infant’s Library. Charming with hand-colored illustrations.  SOLD

Among the modern publishers included in this offering are Achille J. St. Onge, Black Cat Press, Dawson’s Book Shop, Hillside Press, Junipero Serra Press, Miniature Book Society, Peter & Donna Thomas, Poole Press, Press of Ward Schori, Quail Hill Press, Wee Willie’s Workshop and Wind & Harlot Press.

The last page of this catalog offers a selection of reference books for miniature book collectors.

Happy New Year!
