Paris Aux Editions Jeanne Bucher 1934 First Edition Wraps. With Original Box Near Fine 
No. 387 of 812, on Navarre paper. (The second installment is numbered 121.) 11 by 9 inches, 28 by 22.5 cm. Surreal, sometimes amusing, other times creepy or frightening, always clever, fantastic and imaginative illustrations of anthropormophic lion(s) who is seductive, criminal, violent, sadistic. Some of the imagery is erotic as well, as the victims are often women in a state of dishabille. An unique artistic endeavor and a printed rarity in the Ernst oeuvre. The lightest of wear to the wraps. Other than a little light foxing of a few prelim leaves, clean and even pristine within. The original box survives, with some loss and somewhat rough.
