E.Degas MONOTYPES text by Denis Rouart.


Date: 1948

A bound volume of the Numbered Limited Edition of 1,000 copies, this being Exemplaire No 788 Of 40 plates [executed c1880-1833] of which 10 are in colour. Printed on water marked " Marais" paper, the monochrome plates are evenly browned as usual to varying degrees. Small folio 12"x9" with Ballet plate facing the half title and frontis portrait. 40pps plus plate list and colophon stating "Not to be introduced into the USA" Originally issued in wrappers the early binding has nicely protected the plates and perhaps discouraged its breaking. A nice copy.

Very Good
