Zurich: Alpha-Presse, [1965].. 81,[3]pp. plus laid in lithographs. Large quarto (31 x 24.5cm). Loose gatherings laid into pictorial wrapper over stiff wrappers, untrimmed. Minute nick in crown of spine, else fine in glassine wrapper (a bit darkened at spine) and lightly corner-worn slipcase. First printing in this format of the German translations of Apollinaire's letters and poems to Madeleine Pagès, written largely from the Front. Illustrated with thirteen original erotic lithographs by Hans Falk, hors texte and printed on China paper, and ten lithographed designs as backgrounds for selected sections of text, the latter printed on Rives-Büttenpapier. From an edition of 151 copies, this is one of sixty copies (1- 60) with three of the lithographs with highlights colored by hand. The thirteen lithographs are each signed by the artist, as is the justification. Elisabeth Brock- Sulzer's commentary on the text is appended. A lovely production.
