ROJAN [also ROJANKOVKSY, Feodor (1891-1970)] -- RADIGUET, Raymond (1903-1923). Vers Libres. Nogent [Paris]: Au Panier Fleuri [ca. 1937].
Quarto (278 x 190 mm). 32 original pen-and-ink and watercolour drawings by Rojan. Contemporary red half morocco with the original pink wrappers printed in red and black bound-in, top edge gilt (edges lightly rubbed).
A UNIQUE COPY ILLUMINATED THROUGHOUT WITH FINE ORIGINAL DRAWINGS BY ROJAN, one of the great 20th-century erotic artists. Only 250 copies were printed, this one with a limitation stating that the example is unique and, referring to the nature of the scenes, illustrated with drawings that are 'indisputably original'. It is without doubt the best example of this work likely ever to surface: the Nordmann copy included just one original Rojan drawing. Dutel 2593; Pia Enfer, 1499.
