Notes

Signed limited edition, number 224 of 245 copies on vélin d'Arches (a further 30 issued on japon), signed by both Aragon and Picasso, with five original numbered prints. In 1957 Picasso decorated a copy of Carmen, which was being sold for the benefit of the National Committee of Writers. The extra-illustrated copy was bought by Marcel Duhamel who, several years later, invited his friend Louis Aragon to publish the present facsimile edition.
