Condition: See description

In: Historia (Paris, 1955-  ) no. 242 (January 1967), pages 120-31     ¶ ONLY EDITION: This is the original magazine whose cover inspired the American artist Jim Dine to embark on his extraordinary series of nine Rimbaud portraits 1971-73, now very scarce and highly prized. In an interview with Thomas Krens (1976), Dine recalled that he had been "impressed by Rimbaud first as a still life. The Rimbaud series began several years ago when I found a French popular history magazine in a bookstall on the quai in Paris. The cover of the magazine had a portrait of Rimbaud, probably by some nineteenth-century academician [but in fact after Carjat 1871/2], and I was attracted by the way the face looked, physically. Seeing his face in a bookstall on the Seine--it just struck me how interested I was, how much he looked like a young boy, how amazing his face was. I then read his poems, and about his life, and that really fascinated me, but it was his face that I was attracted to." (Williams/Devereux 1977, 23.)  Scarce.   ||| Cover title: Rimbaud, le révolté.  Collation: 239 x 157 mm: 80 leaves, paginated 1-160.  Illustration: Numerous halftone illustrations and facsimiles (including nine relating to Rimbaud).  Binding: Color pictorial wrappers, priced 2 F.  Condition: Very good.  References: LCCN 49051785; OCLC 01586868.
