No. 953 of 1,500 copies signed by Picasso and containing 4to. 30 by 24 cm. 117,  pp. Six original etchings by Picasso, printed by hand. With original glassine jacket, quite well preserved, slight wear along edges and one inch long closed tear on lower edge fold and one inch inward from there. Blue chemise has faded, or turned faintly greenish, along side with title. Slipcase has remnant marking of tape repair, one inch on one side, two, on the other. Still well preserved and we can very comfortably describe it as in very good condition, without excepting this here minor blemish. This is overall a beautiful copy of arguably the most significant work produced by The Limited Editions Club. This copy was owned by a single family until now, and they cleared treated the book with great reverence, as the book betrays really no sign of use.
