Sweet Antique French Prayer Book Direction des Jeune Filles. Little petite books of prayer have been gifted to children for their christenings or First Communions for generations in France. This leather covered book has gilded pages, beautiful end papers, a stunning illustration of the Virgin Mary and Child. And as a bonus, a photograph most likely of the grandmere who first presented this to a lucky little girl!
Little crosses embossed in the leather on each corner, as well as on the spine. French text, a fabulous addition to your collection.
