Description

An Antique Cedarwood lined box made from two early 19th Century books bound in full leather. Octavo size, the books have been affixed together at an angle, hollowed out and lined with cedar; they don't sit straight on the shelf but rather are designed to sit flat upon a table, likely used as a cigarette box. An unusual design, as most boxes like this which we have encountered are designed to sit upright upon a bookshelf. The two volumes used are Vol 1 of the OEVRES DE SAINTE THERESE, Limoges, 1836; the title page of the second volume cannot be seen but the spine title is COURS DE LITTERAT. Light general wear to the volumes, the front hinge of the top book is cracking but holding well on the cords; completely intact. A scarce and unusual usage of two odd-volumes of early 19th Century French Literature.
