In: Historia (Paris, 1955-  ) no. 242 (January 1967), pages 120-31     ¶ ONLY EDITION: This is the original magazine whose cover inspired the American artist Jim Dine to embark on his extraordinary series of nine Rimbaud portraits 1971-73, now very scarce and highly prized. In an interview with Thomas Krens (1976), Dine recalled that he had been "impressed by Rimbaud first as a still life. The Rimbaud series began several years ago when I found a French popular history magazine in a bookstall on the quai in Paris. The cover of the magazine had a portrait of Rimbaud, probably by some nineteenth-century academician [but in fact after Carjat 1871/2], and I was attracted by the way the face looked, physically. Seeing his face in a bookstall on the Seine--it just struck me how interested I was, how much he looked like a young boy, how amazing his face was. I then read his poems, and about his life, and that really fascinated me, but it was his face that I was… Read more

Description:
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."

Memmingen (Bavaria): Edition Curt Visel, 1973     ¶ AN ORIGINAL LINOCUT SIGNED BY THE ARTIST, depicting a man imprisoned in a tower or pergola surmounted by a giant octopus, set in a volcanic wasteland relieved only by a peacock lower right. The accompanying text, interestingly, omits Rimbaud's last line -- "Ce n'est rien! j'y suis! j'y suis toujours" (It's nothing! I'm here! I'm still here) -- which is perhaps to be understood from the illustration itself. This print was originally issued as a supplement (Beilage) to the German graphic-arts periodical Illustration 63: Zeitschrift für die Buchillustration (1964-    ).   ||| Collation: In 2 (260 x 200 mm): Two leaves, paginated [1-4] (ie, not paginated).  A bifolium of machine-made wove paper, unmarked, loose as issued.  Contents: [1] linocut (202 x 156 mm) printed in black, signed "Strauchmann" in pencil lower right;… Read more

Geneva: Pierre Cailler, 1948   ¶ FIRST EDITION / ÉDITION ORIGINALE of Verlaine's charming prose sketches of Rethel and Vouziers, two towns in the Ardennes between Reims and Charleville. These were published originally in six installments in a Charleville daily 1882-83; but Verlaine never published them in book form, nor do they appear in his posthumous Oeuvres completes 1899-1902 &c. These pieces are enhanced here by reproductions of eight unpublished or obscurely-published drawings by Rimbaud's childhood friend Delahaye (3), by Germain Nouveau (3), and by Verlaine himself (2): Two of these drawings (Verlaine 1875, Delahaye 1880) include caricatures of Rimbaud.   ||| Collation: In 8s (183 x 120 mm): 42 leaves, paginated [1-6] 7-74 [75-84].
