      Editions Arts du Monde, Paris, France 1951 - PSAUMES. Gravures au burin par Cecile Reims. (Introduction by Raymond Cogniat) REIMS, Cécile (COGNIAT Raymond): Editions Arts du Monde, Paris, 1951. 1st. ed. In-4, en feuilles, sous chemise et emboitage d'éd. Introduction de Raymond Cogniat. Gravures au burin de Cécile Reims. Texte en français et en hébreu. Complet des 10 planches, ainsi qu'une petite gravure sur page de titre. Tirage limité à 400 ex. numérotés sur vélin de Rives. Très bon état. Peu courant. Folio, loose folded sheets laid into printed folio (as issued), [If you count the blank End Papers, there are 14 double sized leaves, making a total of 28 leaves], 260 x 335 mm. Publisher box is 10 x 13.5 inches. Illustrated with eleven original etchings by Cecile Reims, ten are full-page etchings and one is a smaller etching on the title page). Cecile Reims is a French-Jewish artist who was born in Paris in 1927 but spent some of her childhood in Lithuania. Following the occupation of France, she joined the Jewish combat organization (in 1943), and at the conclusion of the war, in 1945, she discovered that her entire family had been massacred. Jean-Noel Jeannerey, President of the French National Library, stated the following, at the opening of the French National Library exhibit "Cecile Reims, Engraver" (at the Louvre in 2004): "When she was very young, her energy was forged in France in the Resistance movement, then in Palestine - but shortly thereafter, health problems forced her to take up less intense strenuous combats, in the field of art. Initiated in burin engraving in Paris by Joseph Hecht, a rigorous master, she produced over 60 original works between 1950 and 1960, which attracted a great deal of attention. Her meeting with Hans Bellmer afterwards was decisive. It is undeniable that her work contributed greatly to extending the universal success of Bellmer. In the same way, after 1971, she worked with many drawings by her husband, Fred Deus, and by Leonor Fini. For the past few years she is once again doing engravings based on her own compositions. Her talent as an interpreter connects her to a splendid tradition. Her own talent as an inventor, showing both virtuosity and elegance, deserves being acknowledged." 'Psaumes' (1951) is her first published work, following her first exhibition at the Le Fanal Gallery; later (in the same year) the Bezalel Museum in Jerusalem presented her first exhibit of engravings. Uncommon [OCLC only four American holdings (and one European holding): Brandeis, Rutgers, Touro College, La Salle and Jewish National & University Library]. Text is in French and Hebrew, and the eleven original etchings are in very fine, fresh, bright condition; binding is fine, very fresh and bright, in publisher's unprinted glassine, and in publisher's tan paper-covered chemise and publisher's slipcase box. Spine of chemise has a tiny, 6 millimeter tear at the very top edge. Box is very, very slightly rubbed at the extremities, it is so minor that it is barely perceptible. The blank pull out side of the slipcase has a small slight scrapes on the pastedown paper. If it were not for these truly picayune imperfections, most of which you would have to search for, it would be described as LIKE NEW. First edition, limited to 400 numbered copies "sur velin de rives," of artist's first book. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Original pictorial wrappers showing very light use. [Helft p.74; Becco 46], 8vo, The inscription in English reads: "To Mandie from your lazy friend / Jorge Luis Borges - 1951". Nine tales reappear in this collection, all revised & corrected for this edition. Hombre de la esquina rosada, Borges points out, was written influenced by American movies & Robert Louis Stevenson. Emma Zunz "está redactada con palabras opacas, in a style of scrupulous meanness, como dijo Joyce de sus Dubliners. (it is written with opaque words], as Joyce had said about his Dubliners). Funes el memorioso "es el que menos me desagrada." (is the one that least despleases me). Its source is De Quincey's Palimpsest. Borges wrote it when he felt cornered by the universe: "me sentí acosado del universo".La espera is an urban tale, from a true police report read to Borges by his friend Alfredo Doblas.La form a de la espada & Tema del traidor y del héroe pretend to show a romantic view of Ireland. El jardín de los senderos que se bifurcan is a type of crime fiction. Borges hopes that the meaning of it will not come to the reader until the very last paragraph. La muerte y la brújula takes place in Buenos Aires, in spite of the Nordic or German street names. The volume is dedicated to: Mandie Molina Vedia, one of Borges' great, life long loves..
