BANALITÉ.
Paris: Éditions de la Nouvelle Revue Française, 1930. Parry, Roger. Small folio, 80 pp. of poems and prose by Fargue, 16 photogravures. Faint stain to the blank margin of the upper leading corner of the last seven leaves, with slight tape stain in the top and bottom leading corners of the first and last blank leave, likely cause by an early protective over wrapper. Otherwise, a very good copy. Roger Parry (1905-1977) was inspired to illustrate, a surrealist work by André Breton's NADJA. He selected Fargue's book BANALITÉS (1922) for this project. Julien Levy, the American dealer (specializing in surrealism), became acquainted with Parry's photography through his appearance in PHOTOGRAPHIE and this work. Though the title page states that the illustrations are by Loris and Parry, in PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE JULIEN LEVY COLLECTION, David Travis (Art Institute of Chicago, 1976, p. 86) states, "it is assumed that these photographs are by Roger Parry, since Levy acquired them from him." Of the total edition, 332 copies were printed on Hollande Pannekoek, and 35 copies on Japon Imperial.This is one of 332 copies. One of the major photographic works in the surrealist canon.
