Title: Les Feuilles de Palmier, 1850?
Author: Johann Gottfried von Herder
Publisher: Paris, P.-C. Lehuby
An extremely scarce undated 19th century edition of von Herder’s Leaves of Palm, Oriental Tales for the Use of Young People of Both Sexes.
There are two plates of illustration.
This edition is bound in a richly decorated and ornate cartonnage binding of the period, with gilt against green and blue. There is a lithograph central panel.
Worldcat records no existing copies of this edition in libraries.
One finely decorated cartonnage volume in 12mo, IV+282 pages
On note of condition this volume is in good shape, with rubbing and wear to the binding, with light cracks to the hinges and peeling to the foot of the spine. There is some foxing throughout. The entire text block itself is cleanly detachable from the binding with a bit of effort but can be permanently bound with a good binding glue.
