la Colline Enchantée: Deuxième Livret: La Famille Lapinet (Suite)

Paris (7e), 7, Rue de Lille and Strasbourg, 17 Rue des Juifs; Librairie Istra, Imprimerie Strasbourgeoise, 1955; Préface de J. Géraud; ivory card covers with green spine, green and red printing, and mother and father rabbit and their two children, Jeannot and Finette, reading the papers; oblong, 22.5 x 17.5 cm; 33 pages. French language softcover oblong.

An absolutely charming French primer, of which this is the second volume, featuring increasingly difficult digraphs and probably intended for 5 and 6 year olds. The book was written by an education professor and an école maternelle teacher. I can find no other work by the talented teacher artist. Includes an interesting sequence of steps for teaching, quite modern. Also a friendly preface for children, a review of letters in volume one, then a short sentence or story about these rabbits "de moeurs douces et discrètes." All done in bordered pages, in three colours, with little captioned drawings in text as well as print and script stories.

CONDITION: Very Good; no names or other marks, quite toned, tiny rubs to extremities. Très bon état. Item #22178

Price: $35.00
