Englewood: As Stable Publications (1926).

Item #4588

The surreal story of a young one-legged character and the bizarre events surrounding an ill-fated union. A copy of the story was given by Crevel to the young George Platt Lynes on his first visit to Paris and he printed the book at his home in New Jersey, before embarking on his career in photography.
A very good copy of an uncommon publication, light browning and edge wear, slight water staining at bottom edge. The first English edition of the work was issued by Elysium Press in 1996, with illustrations by Jonathan Hammer. One of 300 copies, this example #176 in original wrappers with drawing by Phelan Gibb.

Price: $450.00
