(1948). Thick Quarto. 188pp. plus Table des Matieres and Table des Hors-Texte. Limited edition of 500, this copy #391 of 450 copies on chiffon des Papeteries de la Couronne. Unbound portfolio housed in woven grass cover with slipcase of same woven material. Illustrated with 40 watercolors by Louis Riou reproduced in pochoir. A beautiful production. Interior cover is toned and there is light foxing throughout. Folding cover is nice with light fraying to a couple corners. Slipcase is frayed at edges and seams. Still a very good copy of a fragile and unusual book.
