Le Chancelier de Fleurs

[Paris]: (1907) 303pp.

Item #1248

An elaborate tribute to Gabriel de Yturri, the author's longtime lover and friend. The eccentric dandy and Yturri were at the center of the beaux monde in Paris during the closing years of the 19th century, portrayed by Proust, as well as numerous others. This tribute contains essays and poems by de Montesquiou, as well as a frontispiece of Yturri and a gravure of his headstone.
One of only 100 copies issued, this is number 3. Very good in original wrappers, small stain to cover, pages uncut. An uncommon and important record of this collaboration.

Price: $650.00
