La Revolte Des Anges by Anatole France

Text printed in red and black with red and green initials; lithographs editioned by Mourlot. Limited edition copy 210 of 210. Van Dongen, a Dutch painter joined the fauvist movement in 1906, became a fashionable portraitist after World War I, but even in that medium he gave up all constraint -- he left a pitiless interpretation of Anatole France (our author here) as well as others, condemning a period and a class. Designer morocco binding by Madeleine Gras. Some foxing throughout, binding particularly bright and sharp, slight edge rubbing to chemise. Full green morocco, covers and spine inlaid with light green, tan and gray morocco, ruled in colors and gilt, all edges gilt, green suede doublures, uniform morocco edged chemise. Fine in slightly nicked slipcase. Item #18033
