La Chevelure
Paris: Editions Sagesse, 1937. Quarto 21.5x17 cm., wrappers, 12pp. One of 50 copies with engraved frontispiece by Yves Tanguy and gold foil wrapper with a collage of black paper and gold ink by Hugnet, out of 100 copies altogether ---35 with a different cover and signed by author and illustrator, another 15 on teinte Bourgogne paper and bearing one of 15 letters of the alphabet. The collage of the first 35 include a blond wig floating on the black paper, referring to Nusch Éluard, subject and dedicatee of this work. Nusch had posed with Sonia Mossé for Man Ray with Sonia s blond hair falling over Nusch which imparts a charge of outré (for the era) sexuality and provided Hugnet with a dream he articulates in the present work, which is also dedicated to Paul Éluard. Each of the collage covers is unique. OCLC finds no North American institutional holdings, with 4 in Europe. This copy uncut and fine with no scratches or wear on cover.
