Original edition limited in 32 copies, 220 facsimiles of letters, postcards and calligrammes of the love correspondence among Apollinaire and the Countess Louise de Coligny-Chatillon, written between 28 September 1914 and 18 January 1916. This copy is complete with the handwritten and signed justification: "Edition Originale Exemplaire 15/32 P. Callier"

Slipcase with minor wear. Inside one volumes include: the linocut, introductory text, editor notes, and justification, all secured in a hard cardboard folder; and the facsimile correspondences reproduced on papier teinte as the originals, each inserted into a captioned folder. The correspondences paper folders are wavy on the bottom; linocut is lightly toned but in very good condition. The other volume include only the facsimile correspondences reproduced on papier teinte as the originals, each inserted into a captioned folder, without defects. Rare copy of a rare edition Ref: Ref: Duthuit books 34.
