OEUVRES DE PAUL FORT (FIVE WORKS); La France a travers les ballades françaises

Paris. A collection of five works by the French Symbolist poet (1892-1960), laid in a custom blue buckram clamshell case lined with patterned paste paper and a somewhat edgeworn pebbled morocco spine, and with a leather title patch reading "Oeuvres de Paul Fort", somewhat rubbed. The works, each measuring 29cm x 19cm, are in French and in wrappers, and were destined for members of the "Groupe des Amis de Paul Fort". They are as follows: LA POESIE DE PARIS, Paris: Aux Editions de la Marjolaine, 1930, #91/651 copies, 55pp., drawings by Paul Velsch, inscribed by Fort, signed and dated 21 May 1931. CONTES DE MA SOEUR L'OIE, Paris: Armand Jules Klein, 1930, unpaged, with a lithograph of Paul Fort, other illustrations by Gino Severini, 42 / 530 copies, initialled, with a cancel leaf identifying the owner of this copy, and with a long inscription and poem, signed and initialled by Fort. This copy is somewhat foxed on the earliest pages, and the rear wrapper is slightly torn. L'AMOUR ENFANT DE BOHEME. Paris: Armand Jules Klein,1930, quarto, unpaged, 59/500 copies, initialled by Fort on the colophon, inscribed and signed by him on the endpaper, and with a maxim, handwritten and initialled, on a blank leaf; with a portrait of Paul Fort by Ignacio Zuloaga, and other illustrations by Gino Severini. L'AMOUR ENFANT DE BOHEME, another copy, 177/500, as above, with a long inscription by Fort, with his signature on the endpaper, and with a different maxim, initialled, on a blank leaf. ROIS DE FRANCE. Paris: Armand Jules Klein, 1931, unpaged, 103/530 copies, initialled by Paul Fort on the colophon, inscribed and signed on the endpaper, and with Fort's card laid in, slightly foxed and worn. Scattered light foxing in each volume. The books are all inscribed to the same person, Dorothy Tweyeffort Hubbell, who had grown up in Paris biut returned to the United states upon her marriage. She could have been one of the "Groupe des Amis de P.F.". written on all the dedications and dated 1931, or perhaps it was a wedding present . Perhaps both. Item #1170
