In 1937, at the urging of publisher Phillipe Gonin, he resumed the project. The last blocks were delivered shortly before Maillol's death in 1950. [see; ARTIST AND THE BOOK 175]. Contents loose as issued in printed wrappers. Light spotting to slipcases. Orig. tan boards and vellum spine chemises house printed wrappers. Fine in very good matching slipcases. 2 vols.
