Wonderful French L'INIVERSES ILLUSTRE'. A French language weekly periodical published in Paris, France, between 1858 and 1900. L'Univers illustré was established by Michel Lévy (1821–1875) and after Michel's death taken over by his brother Calmann, who went on to become the founder of the Calmann-Lévy publishing house. The magazine was merged with La Vie illustrée in 1900. These are ALL assorted. They are all different. These are all from the 1860's so they are clearly over 150 years old. What I really find fascinating about these is that they are all from the collection of one individual and that someone took the time to rebind the tops and bottoms of each issue with ribbons of varying colors. Little details like this warm my heart.
These are NOT reproductions. They are originals from France.
Perfect for decoupage, altered art, mixed media and so much more. I think they would make excellent small journals or the base for a scrapbook.
Approximate measurements are 12" x 16.5". The number of pages in each book will vary but they are all fabulous. You are purchaseing one periodical per purchase.
PLEASE NOTE THESE ARE ANTIQUES AND NOT REPRODUCTIONS SO THERE IS WEAR AND TEAR COMMENSURATE WITH AGE.
Comes in a cello sleeve.
