Woman (La Femme)

Interesting and scarce title from famed French historian Michelet. La Femme, first published in 1860, was a book on which a whole critique of French literature and French character might be founded. Vincent van Gogh used a quote from La Femme on his drawing "Sorrow." [Wikipedia]

This antiquarian edition has a dark green cover with gilt lettering on the spine of the cover. The owner's name is written on the inside and there is foxing, tanned pages, wear and soil. Gilt has faded a bit. A scarce title. 283 pages.
