Notes

First and limited edition, number 289 of 300 copies issued. Presentation copy, inscribed by the photographer on the front cover of the title bifolium, "a Jeanine et Pierre, ces images de Paris et da Limousin, cordialement I. Bidermanas, 24-XII-1950". Les Yeux de L'Ame is Bidermanas's first published work, his popular Paris des rêves, which followed a similar format of combining poetry and photography, was published later the same year. This work contains 16 photographs loosely inserted into folders printed with their accompanying poems, written by French poet Gaston Charlet. It is uncommon, with just one copy traced institutionally, and just four times at auction.
