Gustave Flaubert, S.K. Neumann, Josef Vachal
Mladého Flauberta zápisky z cest
Brno: Cerven (S.K. Neumann), 1912. Octavo, cloth, 88pp. Edition of 300.Three early texts by Flaubert, with afterword by Stanislav K. Neumann. Notebooks of the young Flaubert from his travels, with four full-page original woodcuts and a vignette by Váchal, in a handsome bibliofile edition. Váchal offers images of exotic nudes and a portrait to illustrate the adventurous text. This is early Váchal work, when he was involved in the Sursum symbolist group, initiating his rebellion against hypocrisy and the fake morality of the day, while celebrating passion as intrinsically good. Neumann commissioned the printing from Brno to Poltika in Vinohrady under Vachal's guidance. Worldcat finds this in three North American libraries (Toronto, U.Indiana, Northwestern). Rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Michael Fagan Fine Art & Rare Books [Newton, MA, U.S.A.]
