About

The hand-written inscription at the back reads, "En Memoire de M. Leger - Felicitations - André Leger" (in memory of M. Leger - Congratulations - André Leger). Framed with original oak wood frame. Measurements: With frame: 12.63 in. wide (32 cm) x 16.38 in. high (41.5 cm). Opening view: 9.44 in. wide (24 cm) x 13.19 in. high (33.5 cm). About: The windmill Saint-Pierre (or windmill Ribet), known as Daudet Mill, was built in 1814 and is the best-known windmill in Fontvieille, France. Contrary to the local legend, Alphonse Daudet (1840 - 1897) never lived there, he resided in the nearby castle of Montauban Ambroy, but this mill would have inspired him to write "The secret of Master Cornille", one of the short stories from the collection "Les Lettres de Mon Moulin" published in 1869. This windmill located in the country of his childhood served as title to the collection of his southern tales. "A ruin, this mill; crumbling debris of stones and old planks, which had not been put to the wind for years and which lay, useless as a poet, while all around the coast flour mill flourished and turned on all sides". (extract from the short story).
