The Nabi has managed to free himself from all descriptive servitude to better invest the text in creator.Precious autograph dedication signed by André Gide to Edouard Picard in ink on the fake title page.The Voyage d'Urien is one of the great books illustrated in the tradition of the painter's book inaugurated by Édouard Manet, Charles Cros and Stéphane Mallarmé in 1874-1875. The collaboration between the painter and the author was very close. "This book is the most marked trace of symbolism, the ratification by the Nabis of the principle of the book of dialogue" (Yves Peyré).This journey of the Nothing is an ironic odyssey, written "in reaction against the naturalist school" where some young people in search of "glorious destinies" embark for an allegorical journey that leads to the frozen deserts of barrenness.Very nice copy perfectly established by Gruel.Naville, Bibliography of the writings of André Gide, nº VI.- Chapon, The Painter and the book, 1870-1970, pp. 38-41.- Peyré, Painting and poetry, the dialogue by the book, 1874-2000, n ° 4 and pp. 105-106.- The Artist and the Book, 1860-1960, Boston, No. 76.
