Bibliographic details

Four volumes, complete. ONE OF ONLY 24 "EXEMPLAIRES DE TETE" OF ONE OF THE GREAT ILLUSTRATED INFERNOS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY. Illustrated with 108 ORIGINAL ETCHINGS BY EDOUARD GOERG, including 36 full-page hors-texte plates. From a total edition of 250 numbered copies, this is one of 24 copies beautifully printed on fine wove paper (specially made for this edition) with two original drawings, two copper plates used for the book, an extra suite of the 108 etchings without text, and 236 proofs of intermediate states (THUS 452 ORIGINAL ETCHINGS IN ALL, ILLUSTRATING THE EVOLUTION OF ALL OF THE ETCHINGS AND THUS OF THE ARTIST'S CONCEPTION OF THE PROJECT AS A WHOLE). Folio. Loose as issued in wraps, board chemises and slipcases. FINE AND BRIGHT, A PRISTING SET, EXACTLY AS ISSUED. Skira 137 (it is a interesting that Skira cites the book, as Skira was issued in 1946 and the book didn't appear until 1950--demonstrating just how much time was required for production.)
