Additional Information

Les bas bleus. Ah! ma chère, quelle singulière éducation vous donnez à votre fille? 1844.

Mais à douze ans, moi, j'avais déjà écrit un roman en deux volumes... et même une fois terminé, ma mère m'avait défendu de le lire, tellement elle le trouvé avancé pour mon âge.

English: The Blue Stockings. Ah! My dear, what strange education are you giving your daughter? When I was twelve, I had already written my first two-volume novel. It was so advanced for my age that my mother wouldn't allow me to read it.

Lithograph, published in Le Charivari, initialed in the lithographic stone
