Félix Bonnaire, Éditeur



8vo, 19th century dark red straight-grained half morocco, marbled paper boards, gilt rules and lettering.  Second edition; the first was published by Félix Bonnaire in 1835.

OCLC records three copies of this edition (Indiana, Princeton & NL Scotland) and five copies of the 1835 edition. A relatively early work by George Sand, the famous pseudonym of Lucile-Aurore Dupin (1804-76), a novella about a young girl of the lower ranks and her impractical infatuation with Andre, a young man of the upper ranks - a storyline intended to shed light on society's intolerance to marriages between the upper and lower classes.
