Notes

First and limited edition, number 36 of 108 copies on Hollande paper, this copy with an additional etching,titled "Le Guichet." Jean-Émile Laboureur (1877-1943) was a French artist, illustrator, and engraver who worked with many of his contemporaries, such as André Gide, Colette, Paul-Jean Toulet, and Maurice Maeterlinck, to name but a few. A close friend of fellow artist Raoul Dufy's, he co-founded with him Les Peintres-Graveurs Indépendents in 1923. "A master of wood and metal alike, Laboureur designed some eighteen books with English texts, a mark of his interest in and sympathy with British culture" (Harris). "Suite recherchée et cotée" (Carteret).
