Now to the mystery part........This book has a copyright of 1924, could it really be that old? It is called Contes des Provinces, by Suzanne Roth, published by American Book Company. It consists of various chapters titled by province in France, but also includes a map of France, a Hymne a la France, Questionnaire et Exercises, and at the very back, a French to English dictionary (vocabulaire). Two interesting things (at least to me): in the chapters on each province, EACH page is numbered 5, 10, 15, etc. down the margin at the end of each 5th, 10th, etc line (if you enlarge my card you can see the 20 and 25 down towards the bottom right). Is that a teaching tool? And secondly, there are several pictures included in this book. I've scanned 4 of them and made them into a collage for you to see. Click on it and hopefully it will get bigger for you:
So, Michelle, look what you have started: a whole essay on this little book! For any of you out there who speak French, I'd love to know what the page that I selected says!
Edited to add: look down in the comments below and see the translation from Carole! After going back to see where in the book I got this page, it is indeed in the chapter titled "La Bretagne", and the picture above in the top right is part of the story! Thank you so much, Carole, for solving the mystery! I'm thinking that each chapter must be a little fairy tale or story from each of the provinces in France.
