LES BUCOLIQUES DE VIRGILE.
by Valéry, Paul
First Villon edition, one of 245 copies (total edition). However, this is one of the few copies reserved for the collaborators with their names printed on the colophon page. This copy was Valéry's own with his name printed on the colophon page. This beautifully illustrated book contains 45 (44 in color) original lithographs by Jacques Villon, hors- and in-texte, printed on Arches wove paper by F. Mourlot. Villon himself engraved each color on a separate stone, producing 320 different stone plates. An important book (See Strachan's The Artist and the Book in France for various mentions). The outer slipcase is faded and worn along edges. The book is in very fine condition. Bookplate of Margaret Winkelman on inside cover of chemise.
