VERLAINE (Paul). Chair (Last poems). P.,... - Lot 175 - Ferri & Associés
VERLAINE (Paul). Chair (Last poems). P., Bibliothèque artistique et littéraire, 1896. In-12 squared, Bradel red half-perd, b/w, cons. cover (Contemporary cart.). ORIGINAL EDITION, announced by the Journal de la Librairie on February 6, 1896. Edition of 1,012 copies, THIS ONE OF 12 ON IMPERIAL JAPON, not numbered. The frontispiece by Rops (Une Sphinge) is here in three states: in bistre and sepia on japon; in gray on coated paper. Verlaine's first posthumous book, Chair was published less than a month after his death. The verses written between 1893 and 1895 for Eugénie, Philomène and perhaps a few others testify to the gradual drying up of the erotic poetry vein. Vicaire VII, 1,000; Montel, pp. 103-104; Van Bever & Monda, pp. 59-60; Carteret Romantique II, pp. 434-435; Verlaine, OEuvres poétiques complètes, Pléiade, p. 1374
