8vo. Card wrappers - a political(if typically self-absorbed text) by 
the later right-wing surrealist who had notoriously backed Franco and 
had embraced both the church and the conservative state by the 
sixties. Unsurprisingly the events of Mai' 68 do not find any great

Breton, Char, Lautreamont, Peret, Michaux, Reverdy, et. al.  All 
examples were printed on velin fort, sans any 'du tete' or large 
paper issue. This is the Surrealist poet Noel Arnaud's copy and bears 
his 'stamped' ex-libris as designed by Jacques Herold at the

8vo. Original wrappers. First edition of the author's first book. One 
of 150 numbered examples on velin blanc de Holland from a total 
edition of 202. This copy signed. Heine was the acknowledged 
'inventor of Sade' in the 20th Century, owing to his passionate and 
tireless scholarly searching out and subsequent re-contextualization 
of the latter's oeuvre. Anecdotally, Heine had made a pact of sorts 
with Apollinaire to carry out a similar project. However, the poet's 
premature death left Heine to his own devices. Throughout the 20's & 
30's (beyond the aforementioned Sadean pursuits), Heine participated 
in Surrealist group activities and those of the short-lived 
'Contre-Attaque' faction. Some minor use to wrappers and intermittent 
internal foxing, else a very good+ example. Rare.

280 uk pounds

edition of this work by the Surrealist author and polemicist. 
Privately printed in an edition of only 100 numbered copies (after 15 
'du tete'), 'Au Paradis Fantomas' is undoubtedly one of the most 
obscure of Peret's bookworks of the 1930's. A fine example preserved 
(in later) archival card box. Rare.

425 uk pounds


Peret, Benjamin.
DERNIER MALHEUR, DERNIERE CHANCE.

Two quarto leaves, comprising four pages. The founding manifest of 
the short-lived dissident Surrealist faction, as founded by Noel
