Le Parnasse contemporain, recueil de vers nouveaux, full set of the first, second and third series

Lemerre | Paris 1866-1876 | 17 x 24 cm | 3 volumes in half shagreen

First edition of the Parnasse contemporain, a rare complete set of the three series, published in 1866, 1869-1871 and 1876, in which the work of more than a hundred poets appeared, mostly previously unpublished. Some of the poems of the Nouvelles fleurs du mal by Charles Baudelaire were effectively published for the first time in the first series, in the fifth issue, devoted entirely to him, including the following: épigraphe pour un livre condamné – Madrigal triste – L'Avertisseur – Le Rebelle – Bien loin d'ici – Recueillement – Le Gouffre – Les Plaintes d'un Icare, as well as some poems published in épaves.

One can also find some of the first work by Stéphane Mallarmé “Les Fenêtres – Le Sonneur – à celle qui est tranquille – Vere novo – L'azur – Les Fleurs – Soupir – à un pauvre” and Paul Verlaine who had yet to publish a collection of his own: “Vers dorés – Dans les bois – Il bacio – Cauchemar – Sub urbe – Marine – Mon rêve familier”.

These volumes also contain contributions from Théodore de Banville, Théophile Gautier, José-Maria de Heredia, Leconte de Lisle, Anatole France, Louise Colet, Louis Ménard, Catulle Mendès, Auguste Villiers de l'Isle Adam, Charles Cros, Louisa Siefert, Léon Dierx, and others.
