About this Item

[SIGNED] Paris: Pierre Vorms, 1928. Softcover in original titled wraps with glassine dust cover. Second edition (first edition of 250, 1925) Unpaginated (211 pages) with 100 full-page woodcuts by Masereel printed recto only. Measures about 9 1/2 x 7 1/2 (x 1!) inches, 24 x 19 cm. Limited edition, one of 30 special "EXEMPLAIRES SUR MADAGASCAR" (number XVII of XXX ) on thick rag-stock, from a total printing of 630 (the remaining 600 being on the lesser thin "Alfa" stock). SIGNED by Masereel in pencil below the colophon. Arguably the most influential of woodcut novels by Masereel, and a hallmark of Expressionist Literature. Seemingly plot-less, the story roams around an unnamed city, illuminating the vagaties and cruelty of contemporary modern society: Masereel's graphic tour-de-force. About very good condition in the original printed tan wrappers with the rarely found glassine covering (torn, chipped, but largely in place); some minor foxing to prelims; otherwise a beautiful copy of the rarest (one of only thirty!) La Ville printing. No owner marking, NOT EX-LIBRARY. (fprw). Bookseller Inventory # 0E-2SI8-P6DJ
