Baudu, René - Lobel-Riche - Agora. Paris, Pour le compte des auteurs, 1925. Large in-8, half morocco with corners, spine with 5 nerves, gilt fillets on the boards, gilt head, covers and spine preserved, lined case. Spine very slightly darkened - 95 pp,  ff, 23 original compositions drawn and engraved with drypoint by Lobel-Riche, 8 of them full-page. Edition at 310 numbered copies, 1/160 on Arches vellum (n° 174), enriched with a large original drawing by Lobel Riche dedicated, dated and signed, as well as 2 L.A.S. from the artist to M. Pierre Claustre about the book. One last time, the narrator evokes for the woman he loves those who preceded him in his youth, eager for strong emotions, spices of feeling, jealousy and passions: in turn sphinx or child woman, emulator of Bilitis, beautiful animal or courtesan. Obeying the injunction of the text, Lobel-Riche's pencil is in turn strong, tender or mysterious and always sensual. A beautiful copy, finely bound.
