Paris. Edition Aux Aldes, 1927. In-4. 155pp. Early illustrated edition of Gide's drama with a fine frontispiece and 8 text engravings on copper, reproduced in sanguine, by Démétrios Galanis. Limited edition of 320 copies - this copy one of 304 on Vieux Hollande Van Gelder paper. In a contemporary generous quarter tree calf binding with marbled boards and endpapers ( original covers not preserved, and thus lacking the illustration which adorned the front cover ). Minor rubbing to spine and cover edges, but a pleasing copy. ** Orné d'un frontispice et de 8 vignettes gravées sur cuivre et tirées en sanguine de Démétrios Galanis. Tirage à 320 exemplaires sur vieux Hollande de Van Gelder. Cet exemplaire se vante une belle reliure contemporaine en demi-basane avec les plats et les pages de garde en papier marbré, mais relieur n'a pas conservé la couverture, donc le dessin qui ornait le premier plat original est manquant. Quelques frottements sans gravité aux bords du dos et des plats, mais bel exemplaire nonobstant.
