MAILLOL, Aristide. Livret de Folastries. By Pierre de Ronsard. Illustrated with 44 original etchings, of which 16 are full-page, by Aristide Maillol. 4to., loose as issued in the original illustrated wrappers and cardboard slipcase, in a new half morocco folding box. Paris: Ambroise Vollard, 1938.
An immaculate copy of Maillol's only book to be illustrated with etchings. An unusual book for Vollard, in that it is almost the sole book with his imprint in a small format. According to Strachan, this is one of Vollard's "finest masterpieces" (p. 36). One of 30 copies on Japon Imperial, of an edition of 230, accompanied by a series of 15 proof plates on various papers.
