Text in French. Union List IV, 3404. Complete set of eight volumes. Intended for publication three times per year, but turned out to be more sporadic, with two issues each in 1945, 1946, and 1947; one issue each in 1950 and 1951. Edited by Eric de Grolier (1911-1998), Le Portique was intended to be an illustrated review of French literature. Includes articles on publishing, book illustration, bibliographies, among other topics. Profusely illustrated, with some tipped-in plates. Most wrappers worn and chipped, some with cracked hinges.
