About this Item

Hellé, André (André Laclôtre, 1871-1945). Drôle de Bêtes. Paris, 1911, 2011 facsimile, MeMo. Cloth spine, pictorial boards, 12" x 16½", c. 48 pages, no dw, as issued. With 20 tipped-in color plates, a fabulous menagerie, originally published by Tolmer. The forms are simple, with a hand-lettered text on subtle paper, but in a large format. Tolmer was heir to a major Parisian printer and assumed responsibility for children’s books in 1911, bringing many wonderful books to the world by Hellé, Roberts, Legrande, and others. This book was sold with a promotional tie-in of a basket of wooden figures, A Noah’s Ark also by the artist. It was a sensation, Appolinaire said it was a precursor of cubism. Hellé became very influential in the US, following WWI. Our soldiers were impressed with French sophistication and Tolmer became well known through The Horn Book. This book was eventually published here by Stokes in 1924 as Big Beasts and Little Beasts in a much smaller format. See reverse cover image. Bookseller Inventory # 50279
