Hetzel-Hachette publisher's full percaline polychrome boards "with an elephant title in the cartouche". Gilt edges. Blue endpapers. Three hors-texte plates in colours (for Le Rayon vert). Printed by Belin (for Le Rayon vert) and by A. Dersé (for L'École des Robinsons). Notebooks a little out of order. Otherwise, a fine copy of this particularly rare title in polychrome boards. Le Rayon vert is here placed by the publisher before L'École des Robinsons, as always when it is still a Hetzel edition decorated with polychrome hors-texte and the other title is a Hachette reprint.
