"This small volume, intended for youth, is especially sought after for its illustration, although the text is far from being uninteresting. It is most often found in its publisher's cardboard, canvas or paper; the decoration is not always the same. The ex. with cardboard decorated with hunting subjects are naturally the most sought-after." Thiébaud, 190.
