An early 19th century edition of Proyart’s Life of Princess Louise-Marie of France, Carmelite nun, daughter of Louis XV. She was declared venerable in 1873, and later beatified.
This edition is adorned with colorful decorations, designed to emulate the classical gilt work of a cartonnage binding, with blue against gold.

On note of condition, this volume is in good shape, with minor rubbing and wear to the boards, and peeling to the spine. There is virtually no foxing or staining throughout.
