POÉSIES

Paris: Les Peintres du Livre, Albert Skira, 1966. Henri Matisse. Square octavo, unpaged (approximately 104 pages), with profuse etchings by Henri Matisse, first done in the early 1930s and considered the definitive illustrations of Mallarmé's poems. The plates are given plate marks in this edition, which did not appear in the original. An edition of 3,000 copies; this is number 1839. The title page has an unusual tipped-on title patch of grey laid paper. The edges are lightly browned and foxed, but this is otherwise a very good copy in deep blue cloth and a slightly darkened and edge-rubbed wavy-line-patterned slipcase. The text is in French. Item #7063

Price: $75.00
