Geneva: [Edwin Engelberts], 1958. First Edition, Limited to 106 numbered copies signed by Braque and Char - this one of 40 on Arches with original colour lithograph (‘Le Poète’) by Braque on the wrappers. The first six copies, also with a lithographed cover, were entirely printed on Japon nacré. The remaining 60 copies were unillustrated. A further 115 copies of the lithograph were separately issued. “Perhaps more than any other contemporary painter, Braque has been the subject of handsomely printed tributes to his art.” (The Artist and the Book) Char was a close friend and collaborator of Braque. He wrote more on Braque than any other painter, and Braque illustrated more works by Char than any other artist. All five of Char’s poems in hommage to Braque are printed here for the first time. The Artist & The Book 40. Mourlot 60. Vallier 131. oblong 8vo. [ff. 8]. lithographed wrs. printed in colour on Japon nacré (some wear to extremities, neat repair to head of spine)
