MALLARMÉ, Stéphane. Edouard MANET, illustrator. ~ L’Après-midi d’un faune églogue … nouvelle édition avec frontispiece, ex-libris, fleurons & cul-de-lampe par Manet. Paris: [Angers: Burdein et compagnie for] Léon Vanier ‘Bibliopole’, 1887.
8vo (235 × 157 mm), pp. 16, with ex-libris, frontispiece and ornaments by Manet. Original wrappers. The wrappers slightly browned, but a fine , unbound copy, as issued.
The quintessential Symbolist poem, inspiration of Debussy’s defining Prélude of the same name (1894). Complete with the famous ornaments by Manet, this is the third edition (after those of 1876 and another of 1887). Rare in entirely unsophisticated condition, as here.
