Very handsome set of the works of Anatole France, with hundreds of illustrations after compositions by Maxime Dethomas.

"I have sought truth strenuously, I have met her boldly. I have never turned from her even when she wore an unexpected aspect." Nobel Prize-winner Anatole France was known for "his graceful erudition, his love of beauty… his subtle, biting irony… his clarity of thought, and his elegant, melodious style" (Reid, 242). Edited with bibliographic notes by Leon Carais. Text in French.

A handsome set in fine condition.
