The collection of lower case letters that we present in this catalogue is of great rarity. It is so because of the number of volumes gathered here but also because of their diversity.
Thus, we find here editions in small print and tiny characters with, for example, the complete works of La Fontaine, Molière or Voltaire's Theatre in one volume, each of them of course bound in morocco or ornate calf of the period. There are also many almanacs from the 18th and 19th centuries, including French almanacs bound in ornate morocco, 2.3 cm high, and English almanacs published by Schloss, 2 cm high, contained in morocco boxes with a tortoiseshell magnifying glass provided for ease of reading.
