46 ORIGINAL WATER COLOURS
CREBILLON, Claude Prosper Jolyot de (PAVIS, George) ~ Les Égarements du Coeur et de L’Esprit.
Original art work, c. 1935
46 original watercolours by George Pavis illustrating Crebillon's famous risqué novel with a further 36 preparatory sketches. In its original chemise and slip case, with the title in manuscript on the spine. This planned edition was never published. This collection is the complete set of original watercolours that Pavis painted for the project. He was a well known illustrator and illustrated many literary works of the period. A delightful and unique item.
