Tristan TZARA De nos oiseaux

Tristan TZARA

Hans ARP

De nos oiseaux

Kra, Paris 1929, 13x19cm, broché.

De nos oiseaux [Of Our Birds]
Kra | Paris 1929 | 13 x 19 cm | original wrappers

First edition on ordinary paper.
Handsome presentation copy inscribed by Tristan Tzara to, firstly, Paul éluard: “à Paul Éluard. Tristan Tzara. Juillet 1929” which Tristan Tzara deleted and wrote, secondly, an autograph inscription, signed and dated, to René Char: “à René Char avec toute l'amitié grande de Tristan Tzara” with a little drawing of a hand indicating his name.
Illustrated with 10 drawings by Hans Arp.
In autumn 1934, when Tzara dedicated the work to Char, the two poets started to distance themselves from surrealism. At the time, together with René Crevel and Roger Caillois, they formed a small group that was highly critical of André Breton and in particular of his opinions on the Communist Party. Tzara, like Char, will leave the movement several months later, judging surrealism to be contrary to the revolution.
Beautiful copy of a remarkable provenance, superb proof of the decisive rapprochement between Tzara and Char in the history of surrealism.

A fine copy with a moving provenance.
