Nouveau Petit Larousse Illustré. 1928. With 6,200 drawings (gravures/engravings).
Seems to be a first edition. Previously owned by a P. Bennett, Hillside.
A garage sale find.
When I saw the pink pages, my heart leapt out and started to see this book less as a silverfish magnet that I have been pestering Mr. OP to let go of (as soon I had photographed it of course) and more as a delightful object.
