Affiches J. Hetzel / J. Hetzel Posters

Etrennes / New Year's Gift

While Jules Verne books were being published by Hetzel, there had to be announcements of the new books for the year so the public would know what was coming out. 

Posters were produced, that listed the current list of books as well as the new book title(s) for the year (i.e. the "Etrennes" or "New Year's Gift"). Sometimes these posters listed Verne books exclusively and other times they listed other authors.

This page shows examples of the posters that I have come across.
