Contes a Aglaé, ou la jeune moraliste.

Very uncommon edition, possibly the first, of this collection of educational contes moraux, sometimes attributed to the prolific children’s author and journalist Sophie de Renneville (1772–1822).

Some of these themes are illustrated in the attractive hand-coloured plates.
