Radiguet, Raymond - Bécat, Paul-Émile. - Le Diable au corps. Paris, Éditions Georges Guillot, 1957. In-4, in sheets, printed cover, half leather case with red corners, gilded fillets on the boards, spine with 4 nerves decorated with three small motifs (flame and 2 eros) and gilded fillets - 180 pp,  ff, 16 full-page coloured compositions by Bécat printed by Louis Duval and hand-coloured by Jean and Paulette Monnier. Edition at 1030 numbered copies, 1/30 on Rives vellum reserved for the contributors (n° XIII printed for Michel Schweitzer). Two engravings by Bécat signed in the plate and bearing the artist's autograph signature, one in pencil, the other in pen, have been enclosed with the copy. They are contained in a folder with floral decoration on which Bécat's wife has written her wishes for happiness and health (Marie Bécat was none other than Marie Monnier, engraver and embroiderer too little known, also sister of Adrienne Monnier). Two specimens of two sheets are attached, one from "chanson pour elle", the other from "la vie des seins", each with a black engraving by Bécat.
