Good. 12mo-over 6¾"-7¾" tall. Rare selection of the letters of Mme de Sevigne in French but from an English publisher. 191pp in overall good conditions despite a long quote copied on to a pre-title page and some other pencilled markings to the text and a marked front cover. Undated but perhaps twenties or thirties.
