SCHWOB, Marcel.
Mimes. With a prologue and an epilogue. Paris, Éditions du Mercure de France, 1894. In-16 [143 x 121] of (4) ff, 83 pp, (2) blank ff : bradel lemon half-maroquin with corners, gilt fillets, smooth spine decorated, gilt head, untrimmed, cover and spine kept (L. Guétant). First typographical edition, partly original, dedicated to Alphonse Daudet. The cover is illustrated with a beautiful symbolist composition by Jean Veber, printed in violet. Printed at 270 copies, it is preceded by a facsimile version of the manuscript (Mercure de France; 25 copies). With Mimes, Marcel Schwob (1867-1905) asserts himself as a virtuoso of the prose poem. One of 20 copies on imperial paper from Japan. An exquisite copy, entirely mounted on tabs.
