About the Book

Description:

"The years immediately preceding the first World War count among the richest in the history of French culture." it was the time of Stravinskty, Piccaso, Mattisse, the Cubists and a new world order in the arts and sciences. Le Grande Meaulnes is as autobiographical a work of fiction as was ever written in the third person singular. Henri (Alain) Frountier the author even as a youth loved the thought of adventure and mystery. Unlike his contemporaries whose thirst for grandiose travels throughout France, Henri lent the sense of wonder of his own soul to the moderate scenery around him. The dirt road which marked the limit of his usual walks, the glade of the nearest forest, the islet surrounded by the meanders of the river Cher, appeared to the boy's imagination as the gate to an enchanted domain into which he might some day venture. Big Meaulnes is the leader and hero of the three main characters, Francois the narrator and Seurel being the third. The scenes in the book constitute a free and touching picture of what French literature between 1900 and 1920, after the excesses of naturalism , was trying to express: the life of simple and humble people. The book revolves around a pre- WW1 view of France and the world which would soon be shattered for the author by the war from which he never returned. Of this edition of The Wanderer, published in the original French under the title of Le Grand Meaulnes, 1500 copies were made for The Limited Editions Club from the typographic plan of Jean Garcia and have been reproduced by Photogravure and Color Company and the colors applied by hand in the studio of Walter fischer, in New York. The illustrations by Dignimont are romantic and whimsical. Book is very fine as is slip case which shows slight fading at spine and opening.The paper label at the spine of book and the spine of slip case are slightly faded. The original tissue wrap is faded and torn at spine. Book is bound in fine decorated cloth as is spine. internally and or the most part externally the book is mint. A wonderful collectible for collectors of early twentieth century European literature. Bookseller Inventory #
