Do not judge a book by it's cover...
Bonjour à toutes et tous,
We are busy sourcing stock for the shop and I am planning to spend the morning photographing a lot of the new items.
One of the items that I have already photographed, is this antique book.
When I first saw it, I picked it up to put with the others, French Boyfriend advised that it would be best to look inside before doing so....
I opened the cover and it looked the same as the other books but at the same time I was worried as there have been a lot of normal looking books sold for thousands of euros.....hence it pays to be careful when it comes to books.
A few pages later and I realised why it was different to the other books, it is a Livre à secret which was and are still used today in France, to hide precious items.
You will find it here.
à plus tard, Leeann x
