About this Item

First combined edition of Gide's belated discovery and denunciations of colonialism. Contemporary calf, gilt, by Millioud, original wrappers and spine preserved. 13 inches x 10 inches. Slight wear to extremities, endpapers foxed, otherwise excellent condition. One of 1571 copies on Arches paper, this not numbered, but initialed by Gide on the colophon. With a long presentation inscription from Gide to the artists Rosa and Miguel Covarrubias. When the Covarrubiases were on their way back from Bali to New York City in 1930, they stopped in Paris. Then they visited Gide who encouraged Miguel to write what would become his masterpiece "Island of Bali". At that time he presented them with "Voyage au Congo". After filming this trip, Allégret began a long career as a screenwriter and film director. Bookseller Inventory # 29139
