Paris: Lys rouge (1925). lg. 4to., 76pp.
One of Jean Auscher's large quarto volumes illustrating the night life and dark side of Paris in the 1920s. An attractively produced volume printed by François Bernouard with ten provocatively decadent etchings by Auscher. This volume ("Bitterness") is a particularly brutal portrayal of drug addicts, drug addicts, "perverts" and other demimonde characters.
