~ Prochainement Ouverture... de 62 boutiques littéraires. Paris: Simon Kra, [ 1925].

8vo (190 × 142 mm), pp. 9, [5], plus 62 pochoir illustrated plates. Original illustrated wrappers. Light browning to text and wrappers but a very good copy of a fragile book.

First edition, regular copy on Lafuma (after 25 on Japon and 50 on Hollande, total edition 1330). A brilliant literary jeu d’esprit presenting contemporary French authors as shopkeepers: François Mauriac presides over a butcher’s, La Chair et la sang, Macorlan, a fishmonger’s, Les Poissons morts, Max Jacob, a photographer’s studio, Le Cabinet noir, Colette sells travel goods from La Vagabonde, Carco presides over a brothel, Rien q’une Femme, Gide sells gorceries at Nourritures terrestres, while Jean Cocteau presents a crazy sideshow booth, La Noce massacrée.
