"[curiosa Eroticism Signed Moroccan Binding] Verlaine - Chansons Pour Elle."
VERLAINE (Paul) - QUINT (P., ill. Of). Songs for her. Paris, Librairie Albert Messein / Successor of Léon Vanier, 1923. A vol. in gd in-8 format (256 x 172 mm) of 118 pp. Binding from the time in full wine-red morocco, profile of a naked woman sketched in black daring on the first cover, which is also embellished with the gilded title, spine with ribbing decorated with cold greasy threads, gilded title, gilded head on witnesses, guards of full domino paper with gold highlights, covers and spine preserved. Copy in superb contemporary binding signed on the first back cover P. van Zande. Unique edition of 550 copies only. This is one of the 500 numbered in the print on vellum paper (second paper after only the top 50 on Japan subscribed by René Kieffer). "This deluxe edition will never be reprinted." The book embellishes - here in the first print - interesting color compositions by P. Quint. To exorcise the memory of his passionate love affair with Rimbaud, Verlaine throws himself headlong into poetic and physical intoxication. From brothel to lesbian love affairs, sensual parties to pleasures experienced as vices, the poet alternates Gallic songs and outbursts of despair, verses of precise eroticism and amorous reveries ... '' Mahé, Directory of luxury editions, p. 200. Handwritten annotation on the first cover of the original paper cover. Very rare as well as discreet foxing in the body of work. Notwithstanding, very good condition.
