This is circa 1860's French Aide Memoir miniature book recently purchased from a local estate sale with ties to the Orleans region of France.The covers are made of bone and the front cover features a fancy sterling medallion with a center cartouche for engraving. The inside of the book is lined with cream moire satin and there are stiff paper pages for notes. A hand carved bone mechanical pencil holds the book closed by sliding through three velvet loops along the edge.

It measures 4" X 2 1/2".

Condition: As-is. There is a chip in the corner of the front cover. The silk pages and lining are badly stained and discolored.
