Le Cirque Infernal: 24 gravures de Philippe Jullian dédiées à Pavel Tchelitchev
NP:ND (1950s). sm 4to - NP:ND (1950s). sm 4to. Philippe Jullian's rarest publication, created as an homage to Pavel Tchelitchew. The portfolio contains 23 original etchings (along with an etching on the title), 'un chef d'oeuvre de Satanisme' according to Jullian's biographer Ghislain de Diesbach (Un esthete aux enfers: Philippe Jullian, Paris, 1993). The images are the apex of his sardonic wit, portraying many of the fashionable Parisian elite in various dystopian circumstances. Limited edition of 50 copies, this is copy #20, very good in printed paper covers. Each of the etchings is hand numbered in pencil by Jullian and they were undoubtedly distributed to his friends and not commercially available. Only one institutional copy known and the second copy we have seen in 30 years. [Attributes: First Edition]
