1 Hesse, Raymond; Aquarelles by Dubout De Phryne a Abelard
Paris A L'Embleme du Secretaire 1936 Limited First Edition Half Morocco with Slipcase Near Fine 
No. 88 of 600 copies printed on Papier Royal Vidalon, or a heavy stock paper (near card thickness). 4to, 159 pp. Collection of several risque to raunchy adaptations of old stories, myths or legends, some biblical, some from Greek or Roman myth, yet others from history, each with the over-the-top ludicrous, farcical and bawdy illustrations of Dubout and colored with fitting luridness. Some of the parts are entitled "Phryne Devant L'Areopage", "Le Proces de Socrate", "Le Jugement de Salomon", "Les Tonneaux des Danaides", "Jacob et Esau", "Romulus et Remus", "Le Jugement de Paris", "Cassandra", "Le Premier Mariage de Samson", "L'Affaire Abelard". There is minor rubbing on the spine. The papers used on the boards and endpapers have a exquisite silken tissue quality and striking modernist diaper design. The interior is pristine and tight. The slipcase also has some minor rubbing but otherwise retains structural strength and integrity.
