Letters from My Mill. Translated by Frank Hunter Potter. Illustrated by Madame Madeleine Lemaire.
A Very Good plus copy in rust-colored cloth binding with gold and silver decorative stamping; newsprint off-setting to the title page. The stories in this cycle were first published in French in 1869 are told in the first person, typically addressing a Parisian reader. Daudet, having relocated his home from Paris, recounts short bucolic tales about his new life in Provence as well as his trips to Corsica and French Algeria. Considered to be light-hearted, and often a bit tongue-in-cheek, the stories vary from day-to-day events in southern France to Provençal folk-tales, and often feature professions and faunal references characteristic of Provence. Letters From My Mill is considered by many to be Daudet's most important work. It is cherished by many French, particularly in the South, for the picture it paints of the local culture. There are ten color illustrations. Bookseller Inventory # 24295
