(PARKER, Charlie) PARKER, Chan & Francis Paudras.
“to Bird with love”
First and only edition, no limitation but remarkably hard to find, particularly in the fragile, entirely integral box. Visually superb, très émouvant memorial to Parker, reproducing the pictorial and documentary archive about which Chan, his lover, had “cared enough to preserve religiously.” This copy inscribed “with love Chan Parker”.

Folio. Original maroon textured boards with inset “address label,” housed in the original laminated “parcel” tray box with lid. Profusely illustrated. Some splitting at the corners of the box, the tray lid somewhat sunned, but otherwise a very well-preserved copy of this handsome, and elusive, tribute.
