Les noms de lieu de la France [Original Lecture Notes]. Auguste Honoré Longnon.

Les noms de lieu de la France [Original Lecture Notes]

Paris: No Publisher Named, 1894-1899. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. A Very Good set of four small volumes (each measuring approximately 6 3/4 inches X 4 1/2 inches), each consisting of notes taken (presumably by a student) at lectures given by Auguste Honoré Longnon at Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes in Paris, one of France's Grands Etablissements, a set of schools considered to be among France's most prestigious research and higher education institutions. The notes are written in blue ink with some of the notes written over pencil notes previously taken, presumably from another class. The Volumes are in Very Good condition with some damage to the spines, are hand-numbered "I", "II", "IV", and "V" and hand-titled "Noms de Lieu" or "Noms de Lieux" (each title meaning "Place Names"). French Historian and Archivist Auguste Honoré Longnon was known for his research in France's historical geography who, in 1886, was made a member of the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres (a French learned society devoted to the humanities). Longnon died in 1911 and his work on France's Place Names was published in the 1920s as "Les noms de lieu de la France; leur origine, leur signification, leurs transformations" and was issued in five parts. A Very Good set of works containing original notes from lectures given by Auguste Honoré Longnon, perhaps the greatest expert and historian of France's Place Names. RARE INDEED. Very good. Item #573
