Rollinat, Maurice - Lobel-Riche - Les Luxures. Extract from "Névroses". S.l., Le Livre de Plantin, 1929. Large in-4, half morocco with corners, havana, spine with 5 nerves, cold filets on the boards and the spine, author, title and head gilt, covers and spine (pasted on a white sheet) preserved, shaped case bordered and lined. Minor tears in the morocco of the first cover, stain on the first blank page - [2 ff.], 123 pp., [1 f.], 31 etchings by Lobel Riche of which 19 full-page. Edition at 200 numbered copies, 1/30 on Japon impérial (n° 19) containing : the pure etching (except for the one of Rollinat's portrait in the frontispiece), the state in black with remarks (in duplicate for Rollinat's portrait), the state in sanguine with remarks, the finished state and an original drawing signed. Rollinat's Névroses is an impressive poetic compendium of spectres, darkness, and tormented souls. The section entitled "Les Luxures" is certainly the most decadent of the entire collection. The illustrations by Lobel-Riche give a powerful visual translation. Beautiful copy enriched with a signed letter from Lobel-Riche. Ex-libris G.M.O Barclay.
