About this Item

310 pages. 33 x 26 cm. Limited edition, copy 111 of 180 plus (15 copies reserved for La Societe Des Medecins Bibliophiles) printed on velin des papeteries d'arches, illustrated with a host of etchings in three states by Lobel-Riche. Printed in red and black in Della Robbia type, original wrappers bound-in, latter front cover darkened. Originally published 1900 during the Dreyfus Affair. Mirbeau, an anarchist had wide public as well as literary and artistic avant-garde appeal both as a journalist and novelist. As an art critic he espoused the work of Rodin, Monet, Pissarro, Gauguin, Renoir and Bonnard, and was an early advocate of Van Gogh. This novel like Dreiser's, SISTER CARRIE published the same year was also considered decadent; it defied the hypocritical rules of convention, Celestine the main character in this novel is assigned a succession of degrading roles by a society the author despised. Bound by David, raised bands, gilt spine lettering, inner dentelles in art deco style, marbled endpapers. A very fresh and bright copy. Bookseller Inventory # 18926
