First edition, rare, of Daudet’s Lettres de mon Moulin. These sketches of Provençal life appeared first in Le Figaro between August 1866 and October 1869, before being published in book form in 1869 and in countless editions from that time on.

‘Tous les petits Français ont appris à lire dans ce livre et dans La Chèvre de Monsieur Seguin, L'Élixir du Révérend père Gaucher ou Les Trois Messes Basses; il y a là quelques belles pages de notre littérature’ (Pivot, La Bibliothèque Idéale). The edition was arbitrarily classified by the publisher into different issues, all printed from the same type setting: our copy bears the words ‘deuxième édition’ on the upper printed wrapper.

Carteret I, 191 (‘livre rare et estimé); En Français dans le texte 291.
