Chansons de France. Dessin de Fernand Léger. (Poets’ Messages.)

by (LÉGER) Goll, Ivan

Condition: See description

New York (The Gotham Book Mart), 1940.. (16)pp. Line-drawn cover design by Léger. Sm. 4to. Dec. self-wraps., stitched with red thread. Glassine d.j. Copy no. 3, numbered in red, from the limited edition of 700 in all, printed on Chippendale Offset. Unspecified édition de tête, in which the blooms of the flowers on the cover--superimposed on a sketchily drawn map of France--have been hand-colored by Léger in red and blue, and initialled in ink by the artist. Published in New York, where both Léger and Ivan Goll were in exile during the war years, these very classical Gallic poems express Goll’s anguished longing for his lost country. Partly uncut. A fine copy.
