The single sheet of cream colored paper measures 7 inches x 10 1/2" when folded, with the front page block printed in barn red. The music and lyrics, all in French, comprise the inside two pages, and the final page provides information about the song and the Collection "Chante ta joie."

Aime Duval (1918-1984) was a French singer, composer and guitarist, as well as a Jesuit priest. Extremely popular during the 1950s, his songs are still played and his music reprinted.
This particular piece of collectible paper ephemera appears to be a 1st edition.
It is in good condition, with a few crinkles on the edges of the sheet, a slight fold across the entire sheet, and in pencil on the front page "100 --" which I take to mean that long ago someone sold it for 100 French francs.
