    [MAN RAY] -- ÉLUARD, Paul (1895-1952). Facile. Photographies de Man Ray. Paris: GLM, 1937.

    In-8 (243 x 180 mm). 12 photographies de Man Ray en héliogravure dans le texte. En feuilles, couverture cartonnée de l'éditeur ornée d'une photographie de Man Ray en reproduction (petites usures à la couverture).

    ÉDITION ORIGINALE. Exemplaire numéro 195 des 1000 sur papier vélin. "The poet Paul Eluard, his wife Nusch and the photographer Man Ray make a perfect Ménage à trois in this book - an alliance of words, photographs, and a corps exquis. This small book has come to be regarded as one of the iconic French photobooks of the 1930s by virtue of its inclusion in many exhibitions devoted to the Surrealist movement" (Parr-Badger I, 104-105). TRÈS BON EXEMPLAIRE.
