[MAC ORLAN, Pierre. PASCIN, Jules] ~ Abécédaire des Filles et de L'Enfant Chéri.
No. 57 of 250 copies. 26 erotic pochoir coloured woodcuts illustrating the letters of the alphabet by Jules Pascin. Printed in sanguine and black on velin d’Arches. 14.5 x 16 cms. Sq. 12mo., loose as issued in salmon pink wrappers printed with the alphabet in lilac and rose, housed in the original slipcase. Slipcase with some marking, a little spotting to blank endpapers.
Pascin’s charming and rather sweetly erotic alphabet accompanies Pierre Mac Orlan’s short verses in this second, more elaborately illustrated of Henri Jonquières’ Abecedaire. The first version of 1924 was printed in 150 copies and had line drawings on simple plain coloured backgrounds, this was a very different and far better printed production.
