Includes loosely laid in list of books from the Dean's Rag Book Company maintaining that they are untearable, colour-fast and non-poisonous to children. From the Dean archive. This title was first issued in English the same year, but is probably, if not the first rag book published under license in France by Hachette, certainly one of the earliest. Very scarce.
