MILITARY INTEREST. HISTOIRE DE JEAN-MARIE LE FRANCOIS laboureur et soldat du Roi. Paris: Tolmer (1946). 8vo, pictorial boards, near fine. The story was handed down through generations and finally came into print with this volume by Tolmer. Charming folk-peasant style color illustrations by Russian born artist Serge Wischnevsky bring alive country and military life in the mid sixteenth century. Printed on thick card pages the color illustrations are so vibrant they seem to be hand done.
