“Cahier d’ecriture ~ et d’ornements dedié aux Elèves de la Visitation d’Ornans. Ornans: 18 July 1857.” Blank ornamental borders designed for use by the convent girls of the monastery of the order of the Visitation at Ornans in Eastern France. Probably meant to be used as models for notecards and letters. Probably destined for use as models for notecards and letters. Taken from the website of antiquarian bookseller Justin Croft.
