Women writers

« Public opinion is not favorable to women writers; it is almost hostile to them, and it seems that the career of letters
– where many of them have been illustrated –
must be forbidden to them.
This is an injustice and a prejudice » (Hervé de Broc).


Dear bibliophile friends,
here is our thematic showcase dedicated to women writers from the 17th to the 19th century.

La Princesse de Clèves kept in its contemporary binding.
