Post Lot Text
The holograph manuscript of the last collection of poems published during Paul Eluard's lifetime and the 19 original pen-and-ink drawings by Valentine Hugo. This manuscript, which shows some variant readings from Dominique Eluard's unillustrated dedication manuscript (used by Pléiade for the modern text edition), may also have served as printer's copy for the first edition; Valentine Hugo's drawings were subsequently lithographed for publication and some have been frequently reproduced since.
