CHAR (René). Lettera Amorosa. Genève, Engelberts, 1963. In-4 (320x250 mm), in ff. with printed cover and slipcase. ORIGINAL EDITION. Unique edition of 600 copies, on Rives paper, numbered and signed by the author and artist at the justification. Beautiful book illustrated with 27 original lithographs by Georges Braque, including one double-page, 13 full-page and 13 in the text, as well as 2 culs-de-lampe. ONE OF 30 EXEMPLIES ON RIVES ACCOMPANIED WITH A SUITE A PART OF LITHOGRAPHS ON NACRE JAPON, preserved in a flap folder, adorned with an original lithograph in black by Georges Braque, justified 40/50 and signed in pencil by the artist. The set is preserved in the publisher's cherry cloth slipcase. This is Engelberts' flagship publication. The friendship between Braque and Char dates back to the end of the Second World War. Until then, the poet's work had not been published in large illustrated books. The publisher thus played a decisive role in implementing the artistic project around Lettera amorosa, Braque's favorite collection of Char's poetic output.
