[WUILLEUMIER (Emma)].

A Child's Exercise Book. A blank book, in which the first seven pages contain a manuscript entitled "Notions du corps humain" signed by Emma Wuilleumier.

4to. [210 x 171 mm]. Bound in pink paper wrappers, heavily embossed to form a decorative cartouche within a single line frame, on a blue background, at the centre of the cartouches are oval hand-coloured lithographs of adults and children in garden settings, with a stork on the upper cover and ducks on the lower.
[French or Belgian: c.1840].

Emma Wuilleumier has written her name on the front cover. This is a very attractive example of an embossed paper binding, designed for use by children and rarely found in good condition.
