B00VZ1M0QU In French. 1939 first edition / limited edition (1 of 15 on special paper) J. Peyronnet et Cie. (Paris), 5 x 7 1/2 inches tall hardbound, brown marbled paper-covered boards over leather spine and tips, four raised bands and gilt lettering to spine, blue marbled endpapers, 356 pp. Mild soiling, rubbing and edgewear to covers, mainly at tips. Slight curl to marbled endpapers. Otherwise, apart from moderate age toning, a very good copy this issue, handsomely bound. Appears to be a limited edition, with the following notation to the verso of title page: 'Il a ete tire de cet ouvrage 15 exemplaires sur papier pur fil Lafuma, numerotes de 1 a 15.' ~SP10~ This novel by Reine Beurnier is among a small group of works by women writing about Africa during colonial times. It tells the story of a rich upper-class French widow who moves to Senegal in the 1930s after her plan to marry a French Captain falls through. Depressed, solitary and keeping to herself, she only renews her acquaintance with the world when she befriends people of great convictions and principles among both the local Senegalese and the wives of a few colonials resident in Saint-Louis. She gains their esteem and discovers the age-old truth that money won't buy you happiness. Meaningful relationships would, but they are much more difficult to establish and to maintain. An enjoyable read, distancing itself from the stereotyping of the time, this novel proposes an interesting take of women's dreams and preoccupations in France and in the colonies. It also advocates tolerance toward the wide range of religious beliefs co-existing in Senegal and expressing people's universal, yet idiosyncratic, search for the meaning of life.
