I found this 1846 Paperback for sale on Delcampe.....
HISTOIRE D’UNE JEUNE VIVANDIÈRE DE L’ARMÉE D’AFRIQUE
Tombée au pouvoir des Arabes
"STORY OF A YOUNG VIVANDIERE of the ARMY OF AFRICA"
" Fallen into the hands of the Arabs"
Was it an adventure book or pornography?
I can't buy it and I don't read French but it's here at a bid of 15.00 € ± $ 19.50
Some illustrations near the title page. They don't appear to go with the story.
Reminds me of an earlier post about Cantinieres in North Africa.......
