    These four illustrations were created by Gaston Noury for Xavier Privas' book of songs, Chantez Petits! which was published around 1920 in Paris by Librairie Delagrave.  This set shows children with a snow princess, throwing snowballs at a snowman, on the beach, or watching a performance.  Each page measures 10" high by about 7.5" wide, while the illustrations measure 7.5" by 3.5" with a black border.  The paper is a medium-weight tan matte stock.  Each illustration has black pen outlines which have been colored in a pastel palette.  The backs contain either part of a song or part of a poem.  In good condition, although the paper has yellowed over time and there is water damage along the side and bottom borders.  There is no damage to the illustrations themselves.
