A fine copy of this early example of Cubism in book illustration by this influential member of the Cubist circle. Following a period of relative neglect, several recent exhibitions have generated considerable demand for Cubist books, which have consequently become increasingly hard to find. This particular volume is not cited in any of the standard references on modern illustrated books. A pristine copy. One of 70 copies on hollande Van Gelder from a total edition of 1000.
