BONNARD, Pierre. Dingo. By Octave Mirbeau. 194,  pp. Illustrated with 55 original etchings by Pierre Bonnard or which 14 are full-page, PLUS an additional suite of the 14 full-page etchings on Arches. Folio, loose as issued in the original illustrated wrappers, in the original half velum clamshell box. Paris: Ambroise Vollard Editeur, 1924.
In contrast with some of his other books the etchings Bonnard drew for Dingo show a marked playfulness, which are at variance with the somewhat imposing format of the book. Dingo is in notable contrast to the smaller Histoires Naturelles by Jules Renard for which Bonnard also provided not too dissimilar illustrations. Dingo is one of five books which Bonnard illustrated for Ambroise Vollard. Clamshell box with some wear, cover with a repaired tear along the joint, overall a nice clean copy. No. 13 of 30 copies on Japon ancien with an additional suite from a total edition of 350.
