What Our Customers Say...

Description

Illustrated, Leather Binding, Limited Edition

A limited edition work, one of one-hundred and forty copies on Arches vellum, containing the final state of the etchings, numbered sixty-one to two-hundred, of which this is numbered one-hundred and eighty-seven.

In the original French.

In a stunning signed binding by Willard, the binding dated 1932.

Illustrated with a frontispiece, vignette to the title page and to the half-title, ten plates, and twenty in-text engravings.

Collated, complete.

'Le Livre de l'Emeraude' is an ode to Brittany and the Bretons, written as the author was trying to find a place in which he could root his life.

The work is a beautiful description of the region, detailed and immensely true to life.

Written by Andre Suares, a French poet from Marseilles. He was one of the four pillars of the Nouvelle Revue Francaise.

Illustrated by Auguste Brouet, a classical artist who was known for being impervious to the modernist trends of his time.

Condition

In a full morocco signed binding by Willard. Externally, smart. Minor fading to the spine. A couple of very light marks to the boards and spine. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and generally clean with the odd spot.
