Miguet) First edition. Collection of sixteen tales, decorated with a portrait of the author by André Rouveyre and a composition by Cappiello on the cover: it is dedicated to the poet René Dalize. COPY ENRICHED WITH AN AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED BY APOLLINAIRE TO LAURENT TAILHADE AND THREE AUTOGRAPH POSTCARDS ADDRESSED TO JEAN MOLLET. In the beautiful letter addressed to Laurent Tailhade on November 4, 1916, Apollinaire evokes L'Hérésiarque, which he says is his "best book in prose", l'Arétin and Alcools, as well as his relation with the cubists. (Autograph letter signed, 3 pp. 1/2 in-8 on the letterhead of the Italian Government Hospital; envelope enclosed.) The three postcards, addressed to Apollinaire's great friend, the pataphysician Jean Mollet (1877-1964), are dated June 21, 1915, June 30, 1915, and February 25, 1916, respectively. He informs him of news from the front. The addressee had founded in 1903 with Guillaume Apollinaire and André Salmon Le Festin d'Esope. Beautiful copy in morocco by Miguet. Spine slightly faded.
