This facsimile, created by the German art historian Julius Meier-Graefe, reproduces Gauguin's handwritten text and all the pasted in prints and drawings in collotype.

Condition: The book is in excellent condition and so is the box. The front board is just starting - with a small split at the top of the hinge. Otherwise near fine.

About Gauguin's Noa Noa
This highly influential manuscript of Gauguin's was begun by him in France after he returned from Tahiti in 1893, and he completed it during his second trip to the island, in 1895. The text of Noa Noa (a Tahitian world meaning "fragrance") was the result of a collaboration between Gauguin and his friend, symbolist poet Charles Morice. To this, Gauguin added numerous watercolors, woodcuts, and photographs.


(Lecteur, sous les yeux de qui l'oeuvre tahitienne de Paul Gauguin passa peut-etre inapercue tant on a peu de temps, a Paris et ailleurs, pour penser a soi, a son propre developpement, a ses plus profitables plaisirs! elle est la, je t'y ramene: le point de vue est en elle, des songeries que voici.) Dans ces toiles gonflees encore des souffles lointains qui nous les apporterent, vivantes d'une vie a la fois elementaire et fastueuse, c'est la serenite de l'atmosphere qui donne a la vision sa profondeur, c'est la simplification des lignes qui projette les formes dans l'infini, c'est du mystere que l'intarissable lumiere, en le designant, irradie, revelant: une race.
