L’Assommoir. Illustré De Trente Compositions En Couleurs De Dignimont.
Paris: Javal et Bourdeaux, 1931. Text and 2 extra suites housed in 2 boxes, 14 inches tall. Number 23 of 60 copies on 'Japon Imperial'. With 30 colour plates by Dignimont in the main text. With a further suite of his illustrations in monochrome. There is also an ORIGINAL watercolour by Dignimont. With a further suite of 30 original etchings by Courbouleix, each is in 2 states, monochrome and sepia. The 30 sepia etchings are all numbered and signed. The two wooden boxes are leather bound with gilt titles, and heavily padded and lined with watered silk. I believe these were publisher's copies. The boxes are slightly rubbed and the main box lacks a popper, but they both still function., the contents are pristine. A unique set.
