About This Item

Paris: Edition Du Gaulois, 1899. Oblong folio, red pebbled cloth with large paste-down color pictorial illustration on front cover. About fine. With the appearance of a children's book, the setting is a schoolroom with an abbot instructing a child. Actually it is a record of an 1899 campaign for a Boulangiste candidate in the Norman village where Gyp summered, told in a childish narrative and 36 full page cartoonish drawings in color and black and white by "Bob". The Countess was a fanatical anti-Semite and anti-Dreyfusard who denounced populist democracry and the parliamentary French Republic in numerous sketches and novels. She identified Boulanger, who vowed to save France in a time of crisis, with Napoleon I whom she idolized. Georges Boulanger was a conservative French general and politician who threatened a coup d'etat and the establishment of a dictatorship advocating revenge on Germany and a return to the monarchy. According to the newspaper Le Temps, Gyp harangued the peasants and fisherman of the peaceful coastal town, bribed the children with candy and distributed posters insulting the government, for which she was fined. Reference: Willa Silverman, The Notorious Life of Gyp. Right-Wing Anarchist in Fin-de-Siecle France." . Color Pictorial Cloth. About Fine. Illus. by "Bob". Oblong Folio.
