About This Item

Rennes and Paris: H. Callière and A. Lemerre, 1888. THE DEDICATION COPY of the first and only edition of this study devoted to Julien Pélage Auguste Brizeux (1803-1858), Breton romantic poet. A LARGE-PAPER COPY, ONE OF ONLY 25 NUMBERED COPIES PRINTED ON IMPERIAL JAPANESE PAPER. This is copy number 2, with a long signed presentation inscription from the author to the dedicatee, French statesman JULES SIMON (1814-1896; prime minister of France 1876-1877), dated five days after printing was completed. *** "A Monsieur Jules Simon. Vous n'avez pas eu besoin pour réussir, de tout le clinquant typographique auxquels d'autres sont forcés d'avoir recours afin d'attirer le lecteur. C'est que, dans vos études sociales comme dans votre vie publique, vous vous êtes constamment adressé à l'esprit humain en ce qu'il a de plus noble et de plus pur. Mais les lettrés de ma génération ne sont guère au fond que des abstracteurs de quintessence, et le courant d'une civilisation décadente est là qui les entraine. Merci donc d'avoir bien voulu ne pas répudier cet abjecte hommage d'un de vos compatriotes bretonnants: les jeunes gens qui cherchent à se faire par le travail une place au soleil, aiment comme les arbustes des forêts, l'ombre protectrice des vieux chênes. Etables, 5 septembre 1888. Ad. Oudin." *** 8vo. Bound in contemporary quarter morocco and decorated boards. Top edge gilt. Light wear to binding, internally FINE AND BRIGHT. UNIQUE.
