Isidore Ducasse, Comte de LAUTREAMONT

Les chants de Maldoror

Genonceaux, Paris 1890, Pet. in 8 (10,8x16,6cm), relié.


Rare second edition in trade, and the first French edition, one of 150 unnumbered copies on vellum, one draw with 10 japan. First edition of the famous preface Genonceaux on Lautréamont, frontispiece Jose Roy (regular cartoonist licentious works) showing a flayed skin to earth, wandering in the catacombs, a facsimile of a letter from the author 1870 . Bound in half blue calico, smooth back with a gold finial, date tail piece red morocco emphasized double nets, blue marbled paper on the boards, elegant binding pastiche signed Laurenchet. The original 1869 was never published by Lacroix, who had pledged to edit; only ten copies were stapled and delivered to the author. In 1874 another Belgian publisher, Rozez, resumed the background and edited with a title page relays. The title glory Genonceaux was without doubt have edited the Chants de Maldoror, with a real desire to make it known. After editing, he published several excerpts in newspapers: Fin de siècle (14 February 1891) and The Black Cat (12 December 1891). His preface is the result of a serious investigation, which is why it violently rejects allegations of Léon Bloy on the author. Genonceaux providing a charge of indecency, which actually took place in 1892, leaving his publishing house after editing Shrine of Rimbaud. Literature vertigo at the limit of sustainable, the excessive teenager, a total darkness, the Chants de Maldoror, or the saga of a wandering figure of evil in the world, became famous surrealist who made a true aesthetic manifesto. Few pale scattered spots on a very white paper, otherwise very good copy. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
