‘Aphbicécladiggalhymaroidphorebstevanzy’


 

I have long forgotten the name of that author of a scarlet-clad Encyclopaedia, but the alphabetical references marked upon each volume have remained for me an indelible and magical word :

Aphbicéladiggalhymaroidphorebstevanzy. 

 from My Mother’s House and Sido, by Colette. Originally :La Maison de Claudine , 1992 . Sido , 1929
