First Edition. This collection of Breton's poetry in French with English translations by Edouard Roditi on facing pages is also the only book illustrated by Arshile Gorky, whom Breton met while living in New York. A fine copy, complete with the satirical colour dust-jacket designed by Marcel Duchamp, which shows Andre Breton subsituted for Miss Liberty, whose face has been cut out, with Breton's face filling the hole in the jacket when it is on the book. This is one of an edition of 1,000 copies. A pristine copy.
