Scarce, with no copies located on OCLC. With the unusual format of essentially being two periodicals issued in conjunction with one another, one directed at the children, the other, at the parents. (Think teacher's manual and student's text as a rough corollary.) Although periodical, no other copy found of this or any other issue of this French publication directed at children. 4to. (30 by 20 cm.) The primary interest for most would be the hand-colored two paged plates. While the coloring is not of a high level, the results are most charming, with the showstopper being the plate, "Les Fleurs". Other plate subjects include railroads, ships, hemp production and its products, glassmaking, vegetables, the army (military costume), pig husbandry and its products, weights and measures, mules and their products, dogs. Besides articles that accompany these plates, there are also songs with musical notation interspersed. Large 4to, 12 by 8 inches, 31 by 20 cm. 192, 96,  pp. Moderate foxing throughout. The plates are less foxed but heavily toned. The joints have heavy rubbing, and the leather is scuffed.
