BENOIT, Pierre.
The Leper King. Novel. Paris, Albin Michel, [1927]. In-8 [188 x 119] of 314 pp. and (2) ff : paperback. First edition, dedicated to Francis Carco. EXAMPLE FROM PAUL VALÉRY, WITH AUTOGRAPHIC SENDING SIGNED ON THE FALSE TITLE : to Paul Valery // with my admiration and // my friendship // Pierre Benoit The virtue of a sending, even if it is "agreed" as here, is to solemnize the practice of giving. In this case, the recipient is notoriously allergic to the novelistic genre, but he has been a member of the Académie since 1925. Strategic intention (?) on the part of Pierre Benoit, who coveted an armchair and will soon obtain it. Scattered foxing.
