Mon Corps, ce Doux Démon

[Paris?] : [Massot], [between 1958 and 1961]. 66pp.

Item #7829

First edition of this erotic text written in 1932 while the author was living on Francis Picabia's yacht moored in Cannes. Andre Gide contributes an extensive introduction to the work, which is a recounting of Massot's homosexual experiences. The author, a member of the Dada movement also describes the artistic and literary circles of Montparnasse with memories of Eric Satie and Marcel Duchamp.
Very good in lightly faded wrappers, unbound as issued, paper lightly browned, #122 of 220 copies. It appears that this may be a trade edition of the text published by Pierre-André-Benoit in 1959, which appeared in an edition of 55 copies with an illustration of the author by Jacques Villon.

Price: $275.00
