One of 1200 copies on thick vélin paper (there were also 25 copies with an original print signed by Man Ray) .

Beautiful Surrealist photographic book with the images interwoven in and around the poems. Parr and Badger, The Photobook, a History, Volume 1, page 105:"... one of the iconic French photobooks of the 1930s...Though ethereal rather than earthy, (the) pictures exude an elegant eroticism, especially when printed in photogravure so luscious that one just wants to touch it." Blank, Peter, Four Works by Man Ray, Stanford Libraries 2013: The photographic techniques include negative imagery, solarization, and double exposures." . Photographic Wrappers. Fine. Illus. by MAN RAY. 4to.
