Item #6909

One of Cocteau's more interesting books, consisting of thirty-one line drawings composed while he was undergoing de-toxification for his longtime addiction to opium. The drawings are often surreal images depicting himself, sailors and dream images that are among his best work. Despite the limitation of 500 copies, the book is quite uncommon. One of an edition of 150 numbered copies on Hollande, signed by the author on the colophon. A near fine copy in original wrappers laid into a custom slipcase.

Price: $750.00
