Humilis poems and unpublished verses. Preface by Ernest Delahaye. Paris,
Albert Messein, 1924.
In-12 : red jansenist morocco, ribbed spine, gold filleted edges, interior lace, blue silk lining and endpapers, gilt edges on witnesses, cover and spine preserved, case (Semet et Plumelle).
Partly original edition: it appeared four years after the author's death.
One of the 20 first copies on China paper, this one unjustified.
The poet's printed visiting card in the name of F. Laguerrière, one of his pseudonyms, has been mounted at the head of the book.
Germain Nouveau has corrected it in purple ink indicating his real name and address: "Pourrières (Var)."
A very nice copy.
