Droll Stories


Droll Stories. Thirty tales by Honoré de Balzac (scroll down — I’m there too!), “all now especially translated into modern English by Jacques Le Clercq, and printed with illustrations by Boris Artzybasheff.” The Heritage Press, New York (1939). “Banned for obscene material of a sexual nature in Canada in 1914 and Ireland in 1953, the ban was lifted in Ireland in 1967.” (Source.) Illustrations suggestively droll themselves. Will read with glasses on.

Excellent condition. Slipcase. 507 pages. $10.00.
