Item #8743

Benoit's eerie novel about a famous taxidermist who becomes obsessed with protecting birds on his "ile verte". Philippe Jullian's copy which is extra-illustrated with twelve original watercolor drawings illustrating the text. One of 140 large paper copies on Hollande (#50), Jullian has inscribed his name and date (avril 1943) on the colophon page and notes his contribution ("12 aquarelles de Ph. S. Jullian" ). Twenty-four at the time, this is likely among the first collections of his original works- he went on to illustrate numerous books throughout his life.
Very good in original wrappers, edges a bit browned.
