Claudel's L'Annonce fait a Marie (The Tidings Brought to Mary) is a medieval mystery in tone, in which Claudel expounds on woman’s place in God’s scheme.
This copy is in very good condition, there is some mottled fading to the spine but the leather is in otherwise very good condition. Internally, the pages are clean and the binding is secure. Neat previous owner's name to ffep.
