DENIS, Maurice. Le Voyage d'Urien. By André Gide. 110 pp., illustrated with 29 lithographs in 2 colors by Maurice Denis. 4to, 200 x 192 mm., original wrappers, in a new cloth folding box. Paris: Librairie de l'Art Indépendant, 1893.
A fine copy of one of the few Nabis illustrated books, preserved in the original wrappers as issued, and not rebound, as is almost always the case. It is also free from the foxing that plagues many copies. It is interesting that Denis illustrated this book at the express invitation of Gide who had seen his drawings for Sagesse. One of 300 copies.
