      Paris: La Renaissance du Livre, Juin 1921 - Edition originale tirée à 401 exemplaires, celui-ci l'un des 340 sur vergé antique, in-4; faux-titre, titre, 50 feuillets d'illustrations légendées avec verso blanc. Texte de Pierre Mac Orlan (pp. 41-49), 1 f., [3p. Table illustrée, Justification], cul-de-lampe. Intéressante reliure originale de Creuzevault en demi-veau taupe mosaïqué d'un listel de maroquin gris et de filets à froid, couverture conservée. Bel exemplaire. "Cet ouvrage, terminé au mois de Mai 1918 mais retardé par les difficultés inhérentes à l'état de paix victorieuse, a été achevé d'imprimer le 10 Juin 1921". Bofa et Mac Orlan savent tous deux de quoi il retourne? En rédigeant cet ouvrage Bofa tente d'exorciser l'horreur et le traumatisme de cette guerre, qui, en Décembre 1914, le laisse mutilé après une très sérieuse blessure aux jambes. Mac Orlan, quant à lui, est blessé en Septembre 1916. Sous la chronique de la Guerre de Cent ans se devinent les protagonistes de la Grande Guerre.

      Mitsou. Quarante images par Baltusz. Préface de Rainer Maria Rilke. Erlenbach-Zurich & Leipzig, Rotapfel-Verlag 1921. 194x245 mm, 13 p., 40 h., 40 ilustraciones, rústica.  A los 10 años, Balthus narró en 40 dibujos la historia de un niño (él mismo) que encuentra a un gato, lo adopta, pasea, juega y duerme con él, y finalmente lo pierde y llora desconsoladamente. Rilke, compañero sentimental de la madre del joven Balthazar Klossowski de Rola, se emocionó tanto con los dibujos que los hizo publicar bajo el título de Mitsou, Histoire d?un chat, para el que escribió un prefacio en el que desarrollaba la historia narrada en los dibujos, con reflexiones acerca de la pérdida, la frustración, la dificultad para aprehender, dictar, controlar, poseer otras vidas; en definitiva, que sólo se posee algo cuando se renuncia a ello. Independientemente del encanto intrínseco que tiene la obra, es a la vez una clave para la comprensión de la enigmática personalidad de Balthus, que durante toda su vida se identificó con los gatos (véase su autorretrato de 1935, El rey de los gatos). Ejemplar muy bien conservado de un libro frágil que suele encontrarse bastante ajado.
