Les Éphèbes. Guy LEVIS-MANO.

Les Éphèbes

Paris: La Review Sans Titre (1924). 8vo. 81pp.

Item #7005

The true first edition of this collection of gay-themed poetry written and published by Guy Lévis-Mano, illustrated with ten woodblock prints by "Lucien Lovel" (a pseudonym for Gaston Poulain). Levis-Mano went on to be a highly regarded publisher whose creative typography has become easily recognizable.
A very good copy with light spotting to covers, small tear and light foxing to prelims. Inscribed by Levis-Mano in the year of publication on front endpaper. This appears to be the true first edition of the book (and the only one of which we are aware). To our knowledge, all other copies bear the printed "3eme" reference. Only one copy in American institutions.
