Description:
Paris: Librairie Vanier, 1885   ¶ FIRST EDITION of Verlaine's autobiographical sketch for Léon Vanier's series Les hommes d'aujourd'hui (1876-99), which was sort of the Biography Channel of its day. The text is greatly enriched here by Cohl's full-page caricature of Verlaine as a scowling imp, crouching and strumming a lyre while his left hand grasps an arrow shot through a heart: The Greek word anágke ("need", "anguish", "distress") is inscribed on his forehead, and his tail--which seems a bit too low--is labelled "DÉCADENCE". His books are stacked up behind him. (Series: Les hommes d'aujourd'hui, no. 244.)   ||| Collation: 290 x 199 mm: Two leaves, paginated [1-4] (ie, not paginated).  Illustration: Wood-engraved caricature 202 x 172 mm after "Émile Cohl" (ie, Émile Courtet, 1857-1938) by Ch. Decaux, signed in the block lower right and by Decaux lower left,… Read more
