Léon Alfred Fourneau (9 December 1867, in Paris – 17 May 1953, in Paris) was a French humourist, music-hall artist, playwright and songwriter. Originally trained as a lawyer he invented the stage and penname Xanrof by inversion of the Latin fornax of his French surname fourneau ("furnace"), before finally legally changing his name to Léon Xanrof. Yvette Guilbert experienced early success singing Xanrof's songs at Rodolphe Salis' cabaret Le Chat Noir
We offer for sale one of his lovely works. A mixture of fables, short stories or plays, full of humor, but also sarcasm, with a bohemian air specific to the Latin Quarter.
With numerous illustrations by well-known artists of the time and with a frontispiece portrait of the author
Complete book, without breaks, without underlining in the text or additions. Only ”fine” condition due to some stains/tears of time.
