Juliette Benzoni


Published: 1965

by: Editeur: Dreyers Forlag
Cappelens Forlag



it looks as if only the first two books were translated in Norway. At least the story ended like that in a happy- end and not like with the missing book seven in many other countries !

 original Norwegian Journal 1965

In this original newspaper extract from summer 1965, the headline says :

« Three summer books with suspense and intensive love »

It says of Juliette Benzoni, author with a university degree in history and medieval expert.  We see the same early portrait, as in the Italian book covers. It so happens to be, showing her the very first time signing her Catherine books !  I adore the Norwegian word «Parispiken » (Parisian girl ! )

So far I have been out of luck to find the first Norwegian cover for  book 1.  I assume the above image was an advertisement in a Norwegian journal back in 1965 with the headline:

En verdenssuksess på norsk: CATHERINE av Juliette Benzoni

Translation: A Norwegian world success by Juliette Benzoni. We can also see the publishings house name CAPPELEN and the price for the book. I am sure the cover for Norway looked similar like the Swedish and Finnish covers. It is a pity it has not shown up yet on the Net.
