Reve d'une Petite Fille Qui Voulut entrer au Carmel.



ERNST
, Max. Rêve d'une Petite Fille qui voulut entrer au Carmel. 176 pp. Illustrated with reproductions of 79 collages by Max Ernst. 8vo., 265 x 200 mm, bound in original illustrated wrappers, slightly faded in a new linen cloth folding box, gilt black leather spine label. Paris: Éditions du Carrefour, 1930.

Ernst's rare second collage novel about an adolescent girl who loses her virginity on the day of her first communion and so commits herself to a religious vocation as a Carmelite nun. Ernst includes a line of ironically pretentious text with each image. This is number 359 of the edition of 1000 copies on Velin. Most surviving copies have been bound, so to have a copy still in the original wrappers as issued is highly desirable.

Spies, Max Ernst Collages 361-386. Max Ernst: Beyond Surrealism 22.
