Condition: Near Fine

Uzès: Privately Printed, 1947. Slipcased. Near Fine. Georges Borias. Uzès. Chez l'illustrateur, 1947. Privately published in Uzès, France, this attractive edition of Chénier's poetry, designed and illustrated by George Borias, celebrates the 150th anniversary of his Chénier's death. The evocative woodcuts ( 8 full-page and 24 in the text) are printed in 'sanguine', and this copy, one of a limited edition of 250, includes a supplementary suite of the illustrations printed in black. Also included is a lovely ORIGINAL LANDSCAPE SKETCH in blue ink, being a preliminary study for an illustration to accompany the poem 'L'Aveugle'. It is signed and dated by Borias. Unbound, as issued in illustrated wraps, marbled card chemise and matching slipcase. ** Orné de nombreuses gravures en bois terminées en sanguine foncé, dont 8 hors-texte et 24 en-têtes, culs-de-lampe et ornaments. Tirage à 250 exemplaires et quelques autres hors commerce comme le nôtre. Ouvrage peu connu, conçu et dirigé par Georges Borias, dessinateur et graveur. Cet exemplaire, en très bon état dans son emboîtage d'origine, comporte aussi une belle SUITE des gravures en noir (qui les fait sortir mieux aux yeux) ainsi qu'un DESSIN ORIGINAL en encre bleu, signé en crayon par l'artiste. Très bel ensemble.
