CAHUN, Claude. Le Coeur de Pic. By Lise DeHarme. With a preface by Paul Eluard. [57] pp., illustrated with 20 photographs by Claude Cahun. Small folio, 270 x 200 mm., bound in publisher's grey cloth over red boards with colour photographs on front and back cover by Cahun, preserved in a new cloth folding box. Paris: Jose Corti, 1937.

A superb copy of the rare first edition of this much sought-after "children's" book by the surrealist Claude Cahun. Cahun (Lucy Schwob), the celebrated poet, writer and photographer is one of the most mysterious figures of the Surrealist movement, incorporating many self-portraits in her montages which are imbued with a keen sense of the absurd.
