Petit Musée National. L'Histoire de France en 125 Tableaux.

Letaille, Charles Augustin (illus.)

Paris: Chez Tous les Libraires, (c. 1841). Duodecimo. 40pp., + 20-panel leporello. Beginning with Charlemagne and closing with Napoleon, the folding tableau contains lithographed portraits of the kings of France, as well as illustrated scenes depicting historically significant events that occurred during their reign. The text in the accompanying booklet connects the rulers with their achievements, which is the heart of the "récréation instructive," the object of which is memorizing details of French history. Publication date is inferred from the inclusion of the Battle of Mazagran, which took place in February 1840 and solidified the French conquest of Algeria. Rare: this game is known in two copies, both of which are held outside the U.S. Leporello shows one repair to hinge of last panel, else fine. The booklet is bound in original printed wrappers, which show a tear to spine foot and scattered light internal foxing. Housed in original gilt-trimmed box with colored pictorial label on upper cover. Light wear and minor losses to gilt on box cover, else fine. Item #28800

Price: $2,500.00
