2 p.l. & 301 pages; Publisher's wrappers, spine and covers printed in brown (ads on rear cover). OCLC Number: 10801330 (12 locations, half in the U.S.) The author published a large number of satyrical novels and an autobiography under the name: "Gyp." Really, she was Sibylle Aimée Marie-Antoinette Gabrielle de Riquetti de Mirabeau, Comtesse de Martel de Janville [1849-1932]. The well-born author was the daughter of Joseph-Arundel de Riquetti, comte de Mirabeau, who was the great-grandson of Victor de Riquetti, marquis de Mirabeau (Mirabeau Père), noted 18th century economist, and also the grandnephew of Honoré Mirabeau. Her mother was a writer, as well. At the age of 20, Sibylle married count Roger de Martel de Janville; they had three children. She adopted the pen name "Gyp" in 1880 and spent much of the rest of her long life writing about 120 books under that short name. In many respects, she was derogatory about high society, and had strong opinions about the divisive questions of her time. She suppored Gen. Boulanger, the would-be dictator, she was violently opposed to republicanism and populist democracy. Not surprisingly, she was an anti-Dreyfusard and a fanatical anti-Semite. These opinions made her the target of at least three attempts at assassination, as well as a sensational kidnapping. The date of this novel -- 'Le Cricri' is supplied at the foot of the ads on the page facing the title page: "Published 21 mars 1907." The mixed language can be explained as an attempt to assert U.S.A. copyright. An excellently preserved copy, clean and tight in the wrappers, which display only minor wear along the edges, and the ends of the spine; the tip of the lower rear corner is missing.
