Gerbe [tr. A spray of flowers] is a deluxe gift-book, probably done for the Holidays, which contains polite articles and stories for each of the twelve months, each illustrated with nice engravings, many of them engraved in England. One of six volumes issued by Mandeville in the series Album du monde elegante. (1854-1860). In "as new" condition.
All titles in the series seem to be scarce. Gerbe is not in Eureka or OCLC. Bibliotheque Nationale has a copy. (Inventory #: 0015)
