Les Rencontres de Monsieur de Breot
Paris: A & G Mornay, 1930.
Paris: A & G Mornay, 1930. First thus. Exemplaire N. LXXV printed on Papier de Rives. Original publisher's pictorial wrappers, measuring 200 x 150mm and illustrated throughout. A pleasing example, with a bit of wear to wraps; some browning externally and scattered foxing internally. Some cracking to the spine and along the front joint.
Largely known for his poetry, Henri de Regnier shifted toward writing realistic novels and tales in his later career. The present, beautifully illustrated by Barbier, infuses rich color and movement into the narrative. A leader in the Ecole des Beaux Arts, Barbier brought his own flamboyant personal style to his artwork, resulting in a sense of vibrancy and movement. Very Good (Item #5696)
