Post Lot Text
First edition, limited to 210 copies. Benjamin Péret's own copy (one of 5 copies on Chine, not for sale), containing the cover illustration and all but two of the book illustrations heightened in gouache by Yves Tanguy; the autograph manuscript of the poem (incomplete); and 12 original pen-and-ink and brush drawings by Tanguy, the first signed and dated 1927. The "automatic" drawings are apparently unpublished and may have been rejected for reproduction by Editions Surréalistes. Fine inlaid binding by Leroux.
