Notes

First edition thus, artist's copy number G of 15 copies on different types of paper reserved to the collaborators and signed by Chimot on the justification page.

Édouard Chimot (1880-1959) was a French artist, illustrator and editor whose career reached its peak in the 1920s in Paris, through the publication of fine quality art-printed books. His own artistic work occupies a characteristic place, and his editorial role was extremely important in bringing together some of the outstanding talents of that distinctive period in French art. With the Wall Street Crash of 1929 wiping out the market for fancy limited editions, the present work was the last of Chimot's productions for Devambez.

A rare survival: Library Hub lists only 1 copy held institutionally, at the Bibliothèque nationale de France.
