Paris: 1920. Original first edition. RARE. Good to very good original printed paper wrappers / dust-jacket. Lovely illustrations. LA MONTEE AUX ENFERS. POESIES. ["The Ascent to Hell"] Edition Illustree de Douze Eaux-Fortes et Vingt-trois Dessins par Eduoard Chimot. by Maurice Magre Le Livre du Bibliophile, "L'Edition"; Paris, 1920. First edition. Original printed green wraps / dust-jacket, 166 pp, 12 plates, 23 smaller illustrations. Text in French. All illustrations by French print maker and artist Eduoard Chimot, known for his sensual and often erotic images. Inscribed to Pierre Picard and signed by Magre, along with a four line poem hand written on the half-title page, initialed "M.M." Number 170 of an edition of 500. The images are an intriguing mix of decadent, supernatural, drug use, and the sublime. This title is frequently broken up and the plates sold separately. Pages are uncut, all illustrations have tissue guards. Water marks on front and rear covers but there is no staining to interior pages, signatures have pulled away from stitched spine backstrip and are now mostly loose. This copy could stay as is, or could have the spine neatly repaired. Overall a very clean copy with very attractive plates. Scarce with the original dust-jacket, and with unique inscription. From smoke free home. Shipped via priority mail. This is not an ex-library copy. [Attributes: First Edition]
