    Club de la femme is a book series aimed at women readers, published by Éditions Rombaldi between circa 1955 and 1972, under the direction of Louis Pauwels (1920–1997). The books were exclusively available to subscribers to the club, and came in a bibliophilic get-up. Shown here are three title pages from novels published in the mid 1960s. The designer is unknown.
