[Grangerized] Les fleurs du mal

by Baudelaire, Charles

  • Used
  • Hardcover
Paris: Poulet-Malassis et de Broise, 1857. Hardcover. First edition, first printing, containing the six notorious, banned poems; 7 3/4 x 5; pp. [7], 6-248, [4] + 12 pp. of plates; second state, pale yellow wraps (back wrap announcing Les Fleurs du Mal); rebound in brown morocco by Rene Kieffer with original wraps bound in, padded with blanks; five raised bands and gilt title to spine; gilt dentelles to boards verso; housed in a marbled-paper slipcase, edged with brown morocco. A few very minor rubbed spots to spine; some wear along edges of slipcase; original wraps with a bit of age-toning and dust-dulling to margins; contemporary blank leaves with several gift inscriptions in French; very few, very small spots of foxing to fore-edge; 12 plates bound in between title page and first chapter; very good to near fine condition. A beautiful, extra-illustrated example of Baudelaire's (1821 - 1867) masterpiece of Symbolism and Modernism, it was one of about 1100 copies, containing 100 poems written between 1840 and 1850 and published in June of 1857, that would scandalize the French authorities with their decadence, eroticism, and "insult to public decency," would get Baudelaire and his publisher prosecuted and fined, and would result in the ban of six of the poems - "Les bijoux," "Le lethe," "A celle qui est trop gaie," "Lesbos," "Femmes damnees," and "Les metamorphoses du vampire" - that would be ultimately excised from the later editions. Les fleurs du mal was not illustrated during Baudelaire's lifetime. The closest the author came to seeing an artistic interpretation of his work was his friend and artist Felicien Rops' frontispiece for the 1866 edition of the book. The current copy had, presumably, extra plates added, while the book was rebound, and included etchings, engravings, and photographic plates. Two of them were illustrations of the "flowers," prepared for later editions. Most of the rest of the portraits were etchings of Baudelaire, designed by himself, Manet, Courbet, etc., created by French artist Felix Henri Bracquemond (1833 - 1914).
