[JEU] []Abécédaire édifiant. [France, ca... - Lot 346 - Morel de Westgaver
[JEU] []Abécédaire édifiant. [France, ca 1830-1840]. 25 cards, 9 x 6 cm, gray embossed cardboard, light green varnish on front, engraved vignettes enhanced with watercolor pastedown. Cards slightly bumped, a few tiny rubs, otherwise very good condition. Charming Romantic-style set, complete with finely engraved and colored vignettes depicting uplifting scenes. Each card is headed by a letter of the alphabet (no "W", a letter much later integrated into French) and below the vignette a word cited as an example illustrated by the image. The words are chosen from the moral register: "filial love" (significant precision), "beneficence", "devotion", "obligation", "quest", "work", etc., with the exception of the "X" and "Y" attributed to the first names (Xavier, Hyacinthe) of model children.
