Original printed wraps bound in orange cloth, gilt-stamped lettering in brown leather spine label; folio; pp. , plus 15 hand-colored illustrations. Number 97 from a limited edition of 100 copies. Boards and lightly rubbed; spine tips a little frayed, and label a little chipped; original wraps toned, with flattened creases; previous owner's bookplate. Contents are fine -- bright and clean. SOLD WITH two letters, handwritten, illustrated, and signed by Fabres, to a female companion, Antoinette ("Mi muy querida y siempre recordada amiga"). Both are mostly in French, with just a little Spanish, both list an address of 715 Madison Avenue in New York, and both are absolutely charming. The first, dated 18 Mai 1951, has 5 hand-painted illustrations. The second, 5 Aout 1951, has an ink doodle of a winged man, flying with a heart in one hand and flowers in the other. Flattened creases from folding, but displays nicely (contents on the rectos only). Fabres pitches some wonderful woo. Bookseller Inventory # D8774
