About This Item

Mézières: Éditions de la Société des Écrivains Ardennais, 1933     ¶ ONLY EDITION of an early metaphysical interpretation: "Sous le nom de pays d'Orient, Rimbaud recherche le monde de son enfance qu'un incompréhensible déluge a balayé. Dans le brouillard d'enchantement qui obscurcit toutes choses depuis, il essaie de reconstruire sans imaginer l'univers disparu. L'Esprit est la clef de cette résurrection. Ce qu'il nomme Génie, c'est la Vie, ou mieux toutes les possibilités de vie. Il suffit de voir. Mais ce monde nouveau, purement matériel, ne tient pas compte d'une terrible réalité: la mort. C'est la faiblesse du système qui causera sa ruine, car Rimbaud n'admet rien hors la certitude. Une Saison en Enfer est l'écho du duel passionné de l'esprit chrétien et de l'esprit païen." (Petitfils 1949.)  Bibliography (61 items) at end.   ¶ Only issue, one of 1000 numbered copies on Vergé bouffant; the present copy is numbered "15".

About Jay Dillon Rare Books + Manuscripts

Jay Dillon Rare Books + Manuscripts is a private, research-intensive rare-book dealer of forty years' experience in and around New York, specialized in exceptional books, manuscripts, and cultural property. Jay Dillon has been responsible for selling or appraising more than $100 million worth of books and manuscripts spanning some three thousand years. In 1989 Jay Dillon was the editor and principal author of a richly annotated catalogue that was hailed in the English press as one of the ten best books -- of any kind -- published that year. In 1994 he was invited to narrate the Discovery Channel program on the history of monopoly; and four years later he was consulted by the Zapruder family in connection with their famous film of the assassination of President Kennedy -- which, as it turned out, Mr Dillon valued more accurately than any other appraiser. The firm maintains a wide and productive network of relationships both among private collectors and in the trade; and we are currently engaged in building a number of outstanding private collections for our clients. Books and manuscripts offered to the public are mainly duplicates from our clients' libraries, or otherwise surplus to their needs. Our appraisal services include formal appraisals for insurance, estate-settlement, and tax purposes. For details please contact Dillonbook@AOL.com.
