First edition. One of 650 copies on simili-Hollande (Total edition 695). A collection of five poems by Moréas, a Greek-born French writer, who first began writing in a Symbolist style, (publishing a Symbolist manifesto in 1886 and contributing to Le Chat Noir circle); his work was rooted in decadent aesthetics. From 1891 his work changed drastically, he concentrated instead on poetry with a classical style. Ériphyle is one of the first examples of this new style.
